AI am trying to make fondant brains like the one in the pic but my fondant keeps turning lilac! I am using deep pink with a touch of black (Americolors). I am hoping someone here as done this before or has a better idea on how to achieve this color, thanks!

AAdd some brown

Yes I would not use black I would use brown or even a some ivory. It is the black that is turning it to lilac.

When my blacks look blue or purplish, I add yellow. That may work if you are trying to save the batch you have already colored.

i agree, a touch of brown makes it light tan and then add a little rose/pink to get desired shade.

AThank you so much for all the suggestions! I added brown to the pink and it was perfect!:-D
