Can anyone please help/guide me into making a DEEP DARK Burgundy? I am making a black/white wedding cake on the 17th, and would like to put deep dark burgundy roses on it for accent. I am thinking I will stripe the bag with black as well to add that little touch of black on the petal edges. I need the color to be almost black...

thanks for all your help.

it's almost impossible to get a DARK burgundy b/c it's hard to get just burgundy. there was actually a thread the other day about "what you will never do again" and more than once i saw people type, "i will never agree to do anything burgundy again!" your best bet is to prob. get the burguny gel color and add black? it will take you 2 things of burgundy color prob. good luck!
