I made maple BC and it tinted it a brown sugar color... So when I made the next batch non maple i added a tiny bit of brown and it has made it pinkish red. What should I do??? wedding cake, needs to match :(
Help matching BC shades! Brown americolor turned it red-ish

take a spoonful of each and combine them--if you like the color then go with that--otherwise could you fill the cake with one and coat the cake with the other?
of course make it all maple is another option
but rehabilitating the reddish into something workable is unlikely unless this color works for your design or you could probably get to a peachy color by adding yellow or an orange color adding the same...
or you could take a spoonful of the reddish and add cocoa powder to take it browner?
but i'd advise that you don't work with all of it till you test--

Take a small portion of the too reddish and add a touch of green and see if that helps.
