i'd like to serve wasc cake but want it to be lighr pink. can i put a touch of pink coloring in the batter without any adverse effect? most specifically, after baking, it wouldn't bleed through the icing it touches would it? i think not but i'd like a little reinforcement in my thinking. thanks!
If you are just adding enough to make a light pink, it shouldn't have any adverse effects, either to the taste of the cake or to the icing. I haven't made pink, but I have made green, blue, yellow, and orange, and they were all fine.
thank you redpanda!
I haven't colored a WASC cake yet...but i have colored several others including using black color for a chocolate cake and it didn't change the flavor at all.
I just did the WASC in green and red and they were fine.
How do you guys add the color? At what point of the mixing process?
Thank You so much, I hope you guys can help me
Iadded it at the end, after I divided my batter.
MIx it well w/the liquid before adding to the dry ingredients.
I've done WASC rainbow cake with really intense colors (Americolor) and had no problems or any kind of bitter taste whatsoever. I've also done it in more pastel-type colors. It will be FINE! I mix my colors in after I've mixed the batter.
