I'm trying to make Burgundy / maroon fondant for a car cake for my brother's 40th. I bought AmeriColor gels in the Burgundy shade however, when I mix it with the fondant I'm only getting bright purple. I tried adding black but it's still just a bright purple. Any advice on how to get a burgundy or maroon color. Should I add more black ? or add more burgundy? Would it be better to buy red fondant and mix it with black? Any advice would be great.
AI use a mix of red fondant & black fondant. I have not tried that Americolor color.
Thank you Delicious desserts!!!
AI also mix fondants. I use red and brown (chocolate)and a little black. I may boost with burgundy gel but generally I don't need to.
