On the left side is my object in render mode and on the right is my object in preview mode

When I render, the donut body becomes this dark purple colour and I have no idea why. My icing also becomes much darker than it is in the preview.

Why is this the case?

without seeing the blend file my guess is that you might have changed the object color under Object Properties - Viewport Display and also applied a color as a material or node giving you two different results.

I believe the problem lies within the general lighting setup I have.

As you can see with the images below changing the color of the baseplate made a significant impact on the color of the donut.

The donut base still isn't as orangey as I would have hoped but at least now I have an understanding of what I need to change in order to achieve the color I want.

Furthermore, I had very extreme subsurface and subsurface radius settings set, allowing the other colors in the scene to significantly affect the color of the object.
