Hi, I haven't been here in a while, but I have a dilemma. Are there any colours I can combine to make a burgandy colour? I'm in a bit of a crunch.

Well, according to the ingredient list on my burgandy color bottle (Wilton), the colors used are red, yellow and blue. Maybe that will help you achieve what you're looking for? HTH

Hi.. burgundy is a hard color to get. Basically it is mostly red with some purple and a tiny bit of brown. I would start with a red icing and add purple a little bit at a time. Finish off with a touch of brown to tone it.

Wilton does make a burghandy color paste. I got mine from Michaels.
