Can anyone help me. I purchased the "more from Magnolia" book, just to be able to make red velvet cupcakes. In the recipe it says I am to use 6 tablespoons of red food coloring, now for my question; What consistency food colouring do you use? paste, gel or watery consistency? Here in Norway where I live the most common one is the watery one, but I am unsure if it will make the batter to wet.

Every recipe I've seen for Red Velvet has called for the liquid food color. I can't imagine using 6 Tablespoons of paste! That would be several jars. Yuck! Stick to the liquid!
