I'm making a grad cake for my neice and she wanted hot pink frosting. Well, of course I had to add quite a bit of color to get what she wants and now my bc has a bitter after taste. Is there anything I can do to correct this? I refuse to serve a cake that doesn't taste good!
Thanks for any and all help!
I have the same problem-with any brand of hot pink but nobody seems to complain. I try it and think it's horrible, but if it's on the cake it isn't as noticeable. I would love a solution!
I was thinking of maybe making a new batch and trying a wee bit of Americolor super red. Anyone ever try this?
I made hot pink bc with Americolor's hot pink and a little bit of Wilton red-red and Wilton pink. It wasn't bitter. The pic is in my gallery, so you can see if that's the same color you're going for.
Thanks! I had some cake scraps left and I tried some w/ the frosting and it's not as noticeable. I'm so sick of remaking everything! It seems like lately all I do is re bake things and make more bc than I can even say. It's too expensive and down right frustrating.
Ugghh, sorry for the mini vent! I'm having a bad day!
We all have those days sometimes. Sometimes we have entire WEEKS that are bad! Just take a deep breath, decide if you can fix what needs fixing and do it one step at a time. You might create your biggest masterpiece yet!
yup, I finished it and it really came out nice. Allthough....you wouldn't believe it but I needed to make more frosting and when I went to grab my crisco out of the pantry, I was all out! ughhh...it was too late to go to the store, so I took the lavender bc I had in the freezer from my last project and lightened it, then I added a pink to it and a bit of super red. It's not what I would call hot pink, but it had to do. My neice loves pink, so I'm sure she'll be fine w/ it. Here's the link to my pic:
It was my first time frosting a square cake too!
You did a great job! The cake is beautiful and your corners are perfect! I sure wouldn't know it was your first square! Great save on changing the color too. It looks very nice.
