How do I get a nice deep red in BC without using 3 bottles of colour?... Airbrush is not an option...as I don't have one! Does starting with a pink help?
I always have to use about 1/4 bottle of each of these Wilton colors: Christmas Red, Red Red and No Taste Red.
yes, start out with pink or a little cocoa or both, then add the red
Americolor Super Red.
I purchased a HUGE bottle of Bakery Crafts Super Red (I think it's 13.5oz). Stuff works GREAT! No more "strange pink/red" icing...
Forgot to add: make it at least one day ahead... the color will deepen as it sits.
i buy it predyed, cheapest place is www.ultimatebaker.com, It is soooooooooo,sooooooo,sooooooo worth it. Saves time and money!!!
