So, I have 300 cupcakes due this weekend. The bride's colors are plum and navy and she wants the cupcakes to be navy. I am making a sample batch of icing and have already used 1 T and 2 t of CK Navy Blue dye and we are nowhere close. I took a bite to see how it did and of course,my mouth is blue. I'm going to have to special order way more dye and pray I get it in time, but right now we are nowhere close to the right color. Any ideas? I cannot buy the dye locally. At least not navy blue. But I guess my main concern is that it's going to be very costly to get enough dye and then once I do, it's going to ruin the taste, consistency and make everyone's mouths blue. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
