I'm trying to get royal icing the same blue as the NY Giants. I added Royal Blue until I was afraid it was going to be bitter, but it's nowhere near Royal colored. I also have to make fondant this color. Is there another color I should be using or adding?

Ok..hope this might help you. When I had to make fondant a deep blue; Knead in some royal blue gel paste into fondant and airbrush with a darker blue ~ navy. I assume you are outling in royal icing; Tint royal icing in royal blue and do your piping. After the royal icing has dried; mix navy gel paste with lemon extract, vodka or everclear and paint with an artist brush over dried piping carefully. [/b][/u]

I forgot to come back and thank you! Thanks for the advice! I didn't have any navy on hand and I don't own an airbrush so I just did what I could since the stuff was a freebie anyway.

Now that I have navy, I'll know what to try next time.

If you need dark royal icing colours in the future, use airbrush colours in place of the water (sometimes you still have to add a little bit of water). Works like a charm! That's how I made my black RI on my penguin cake.

I am sorry that I didn't include instructions without using an airbrush.

If you don't own an airbrush, next time you might want to paint the navy color on with a brush and clear alcohol, lemon extract or vodka.
