My nephew is getting married, his bride to be would like her colors burgundy & sage.
My questions are: 1. does the color burgundy affect the taste of the icing (iced in buttercream)?
2. What colors could I use to get a deep rich burgundy?
3. Would or could the color burgundy bleed?
I would be greatful for any info you could share about this color.
Thanks so much!
When I get a bride who asks for burgundy, I always ask her "Burgundy-Red or Burgundy-Purple?" Learned the hard way YEARS ago that people have different visions of what "burgundy" is.
There is a burgundy color gel you can buy. It's on the purple side. I made some burgundy yesterday that needed to be more on the red side, so I had to add red to it to get the color I needed (to match the dress).
The color can bleed if it's applied to 'wet' icing. I let my base icing crust well, then when I apply the color decors, it sets up fine.
I know that Wilton has a burgandy color. That might be a good jumping off point, and you can always add to it to get your perfect shade. Good luck!
I am glad to have found this post.I will be using burgandy next month,glad to know this info.since I have never used it before.I haven't purchased my color yet but I have been looking at the americolor on gsa. and also the wilton burgandy anyone know which is better?They are both gel colors.
Thanks so much Debi & DefyGravity for your reply and the info.
I didn't think about that Debi, it is ture people can see burgundy as "Burgundy-Red or Burgundy-Purple. I always see it as a burgundy wine
Thanks kokopuff, I will have to check out the Americolor burgundy.
