Hi everyone..I'm making hamburger cupcakes for my nephew. I have all my BC mixed and coloured. I've let them sit overnight hoping they'd go darker/brighter. But no... My red still looks like a dark pink. I use the Wilton colours.
As far as the red, most people here start out with a base of Wilton pink and then add the no taste red that Wilton sells. So far it works for me. Any other colors not working?
For red, always start with a chocolate frosting. I would also think about switching from Wilton colors - they are nat as good as Americolor which I use very little each time and still get beautiful, vibrant colors (Americolor also has a wider color selection).
Well, I have done the cheeseburger cupcakes (in my photos) I used some wilton red but I also used some of the "old fashioned" food coloring in the squeeze bottles. Left overnight they will give you a nice bright red. HTH
I used chefmaster liqua gel color for the catsup on the cheesburger in my photos. It takes very little color and doesn't need to sit to intensitfy. Same goes for their black. No need to start with a different color before adding the red. Easy and ready to use immediately.
Thanks everyone! I live in Canada so I'm not sure if we carry Chefmasters or Americolours. I thought about using the 'old fashioned' food colouring but wasnt sure what would happen...
