I was wondering if anyone uses deco roma fondant and if so, have you had trouble with it holding color? Most of all purple. Mine faded to a lovely shade of navy blue on a cake today. Any suggestions?

I always have trouble with purple! It doesn't seem to matter which brand either. If I mix my own purple up it will fade a lit in just a day or two. What's up with that??

Well Wilton (yes I know it's nasty) holds the most amazing colors...or at least for me it does. I've had trouble with all of the other fondants, but this is the worse. I would even love a suggestion to a fondant that holds color better.

I've attached a picture of my cake that started out such a lovely shade of deep royal purple and eventually turned navy blue!!! I had a pillow that did the same. With the pillow I was lucky enough that it had pink accents, so after 3 coats of pink airbrush I had a lovely purple (and VERY bright pink accents).
