I am making a yellow cake from a box mix and I want to dye it orange for Halloween. I imagine it won't take much dye but I'm worried. Any thoughts?

it will dye really easy. I did the rainbow cake and the colors come out really well. I used wilton orage gel and only the tip of a butter knife of it.

good luck with your cake icon_smile.gif

hi jules. what kind of color are you using? (liquid, gel, powder, etc). and how rich of a color orange are you looking for? what about coloring the cake are you worried about?

I'm using grocery store gel colors. I just wanted to make sure the flavor of the gel didn't affect the taste of the cake.

jules, black and some reds can get bitter. you can add as much orange as you'd like. no worries
