Default UB ribbon stop fading??

I just ordered some polka dot ribbon from UB and I was wanting to make some korkers with them...when my lavender came out of the oven it had faded really bad...it's still lavender, but not that pretty bright, it's kinda dull. My other colors were fine. How do I keep it from fading? TIA

Cook at a much lower temp. I just did a whole batch last night w/ UB ribbon and instead of my normal 275 degrees for 30 minutes, I did 200 degrees for about 45 minutes-I kept checking to make sure my dots sisn't disappear! HTH

Okay, I'm gonna try that...I cooked them at 225 for 25 minutes...my dots were fine, the actual color of the ribbon faded...Maybe too much starch?
