I have a cake that is all black and red. But she does not want bright red, more of a pretty dark cherry red. How do I achieve this color. I have bright red color. Now what?

Add some brown or black to the red. Also, the color will "bloom" after you mix it. If you think it's just not dark enough, set it aside for 30 minutes up to overnight. The color will darken.
