I just made red velvet cake yesterday. It's my 1st time trying to make red velvet cake. According to the recipe, I need to add 2 tbsp liquid red coloring. I only had 1/2 tbsp liquid coloring so I added 1 tbsp paste coloring for the total 1 1/2 tbsp (1/2 tbsp less). The cake was delicious but the color that make me scared. It's very red, stain your teeth and tonge also on the plate and spoon. I just wondering if I put too much coloring in it. Is it safe???? Please advise.

The (concentrated) paste coloring is what's staining your teeth, etc.

And while you used too much, it's not harmful. icon_smile.gif
