Im doing a Elmo cake for a friend and i know it has a lot of red will this taste really bad she wants a yellow cake what flavoring could i use to help with the taste??
I use the Wilton gel that is Red No taste. I have to use a lot of it, and I try to make it the day or two before so that it will get darker and if it isn't as dark as I would like, I add more. I also sometimes add some burgandy coloring to help.
My favorite red is Americolor's Super Red
Chefmaster liqua gel is the best there is. Takes very little and you get red instantly with no bad taste. That's all that I use now that I have found it.
Use vanilla coffee creamer in place of the liquid.
I found that the "no taste" red isn't red enough. Wiltons "red-red" or Americolor's "super red" give the best color. (I haven't tried Chefmaster).
I also use the wilton no taste but I mix it with the Americolor soft gel paste in super RED. I made an elmo cake and the customers raved about the icing because it did not have the bitter aftertaste. Great idea from judylynnturner mixing the day before
thank you everyone i will try the coffee creamer, and later i will order something else besides my wilton
