I am having a hard time getting my fondant a royal blue color. I have gone through two bottles of americolor and it is still too light. I need it the color of the Marine Corps dress blues trousers. Is there any way to get it that dark color?

You could try adding just a pinch of black to darken it

Thank you both for the advice! I did try adding a little black, but it's still too light. It is getting darker as it sits though. Should I add more black or would it be better for me to air brush it once the fondant is on the cake?
