Thread Starter 

Hello there,

 

Can anyone help me please, I need to make this cake(picture attached), a Lalaloopsy face! but can't get the colour of her hair. I've tried violet and also the deep purple but with no results. Any suggestions please? It is very urgent as I need to do the cake for tomorrow evening.

 

Thanks alot.

Try adding a very small amount of red or even pink to your violet. Try a small batch first. Add more if you need. Hope that helps!

If you add in red or pink, you also should add in some royal or navy blue.

I'd say add a little pink or electric pink to violet. Red has a tinge of yellow in it and will cause the purple to look 'dirty'.
