Americolor has the exact Barney purple. I used it to make the Barney in my photos.

I had to dig it out. It is Electric Purple the number on it is 165. Now that cake was BC, so I don't know how it will do with fondant, but it should do. You will just have to use more. Are you making mmf? If so, make sure to put it in the melted marshmallows, you will have better luck obtaining the desired color. HTH

I also just pulled up the instructions from Wilton for the pan that I used. It was to make the Barney Purple with wilton gels this is how:

Mix Wilton Rose and Royal Blue Icing colors. To each cup of white BC, add 3/4 tsp rose and using a toothpick add 6dots royal bule.
