I need to make a red border around this 1/2 sheet cake and I find that Wilton's Red Decorating Icing in the tube darkens so much after you put it on the cake. Has anyone tried mixing the tube icing with your homemade white buttercream to get a lighter red, however, I don't want pink. icon_smile.gif

I would mix it with Wilton's White Decorating Icing. That way you can be sure it won't fade.
