Can anybody show me cakes with these different colors? PLEASE
While some people use the color interchangably, I thinnk of burgindy as a deep purpley red--like the wine. Maroon is more of a brownish red color
Here is an example of maroon, imo.
here is the color I need.. so is this maroon?
I also think they are used interchangeably. When a bride tells me burgundy, I ask her "Burgundy-red or Burgundy-purple?"
I would say from that pic that it is maroon
I say that that maroon has more reddish tones while burgandy has more brown
to me the pic you showed is maroon.
I agree maroon is more reddish brown
while burgundy in more reddish plum colored
Christi, in another post you said they have napkins for the party, can you get one of those and get as close to that color as possible?
I wish I could.. I will still try to get a hold of them.. the people throwing the party will be out of town until 2 days before the graduation. won't give me much time to try to recreate this color
Yes, two days would be cutting it a little close. Is there a shop near you that sells souvenirs/collectibles for this school that you could go look at them, maybe get a sample you could use to go by?
you know what? I didn't even think about that!!! Thank you so much veej
Better make the icing a day in advance, kiddo. Anything with red in it takes overnight for the color to mature.
I thought I'd make it 3 or 4 days in advance Theresa .. just to be safe
Glad I could help a little. Hope you can find what you need! We will be looking forward to the finished product.
That color is definitely maroon.
You probably have seen this or something similar, but maybe it will help you or someone else.
I was also going to suggest making the icing ahead of time to let it deepen.
Haha - the difference is about 25 years! Seriously though... the maroon is a bit brown/blue. Burgundy is more pink... more of what you find in home dec today.
