I am trying to make purple gumpaste flowers using Wiltons gel colours but they turn a blue.  Any ideas how to make the gumpaste purple?

A cake deco teacher says Wilton purple changes color and to use the American gel color or use a paste. I haven't tried it yet but I'm going to give it a try.

No fade purple by Chefmaster is about the only color that is going to stay a true purple.  It is what  Nicholas Lodge recommends.

Thank you, Cara-mel for your reply.  Unfortunately, I live in Tanzania!!!  I will put Americolor on my shopping list for the next time I am in Canada, which is my home.

if they're turning blue, you could add a tiny bit of red?

I have americolor and it also fades blue. I believe gretch77 is right about chefmaster, but I have yet to try it.

No problem, Cara-mel!  I didn't mention the fact that I live in Tanzania in my original post!!  Yes, it is very beautiful here!  I live on the top of the rift in a city called Mbeya.  I am a missionary working with the poorest of the poor children and single mothers.  We have been working with the children for 9 years.  Now we are trying to start an income generating project for the single mothers by making and selling cakes.
