Try Americolor brand Super Red. Definitely DO NOT use Wilton's. Also, your color will darken a little more if you let it sit for several hours before using it.

Americolor is great, but if you don't have access to it, Wilton No-Taste Red has always worked fine for me in terms of omitting the bitterness; however, it might turn out a littler paler red than you are trying for.

alot of black and red flavorings have a bitter taste so you have to make sure you buy "no taste" red and black color. I don't know why they would even make color that has a bitter taste, but they do icon_surprised.gif It says "no taste" right on the front though so thats what I've been buying icon_biggrin.gif

Chefmaster liqua gel is concentrated, takes only a little bit and no letting it set to darken. No bitter taste.
