Ever since I have started decorating cakes I have used the Wilton gel paste colors. But I am not a fan because they are messy, and I don't like having to use a toothpick/spoon/spatula to get the color out. I was thinking about switching over to Americolor because of their squeeze botttles. Anyone have anything good or bad to say about Americolor? Any other brands I should look into?

I love Americolor. It's the only color I use.

I love love Americolor. I only have to use a small amount of Super Red instead of a whole bottle of Wilton. I will not go back to wilton colors. You won't be sorry you switched.

I love Americolor. I have had great results with the colors, but I really use them because of the squeeze bottles. I hated the toothpick method!

Americolor rocks! Another thing I hated about the Wilton colors is that they always leaked, even if I only opened the foil a teeny tiny bit. The Americolor never leak!
