Well, I'm on my 3rd cake now and need more help. I read somewhere once what color to add so that your red is deeper; but I can't remember it. Anyone know what it is. Thanks!
I have added pink in first. That will make red a deeper color.
I think the brand of color makes a huge difference. I used to use Wilton colors but had to use so much and the color wasn't very deep. I switched to Americolor and it's been great. Their "Super Red" achieves a really dark color and you only have to use a little bit.
I love chefmasters super red..
Add a drop of purple to deepen the red. I learned that on here, tried it, and...it worked like a charm! Also, letting it sit in the fridge overnight helped it darken, too.
I used Americolor Super Red - I forgot to tint it pink first, but it still worked.
Thank you for the help.
i love all of chefmasters colors. and i love bakerycraft red red.. earlene moore got us all on that one.
For my super heros cake, I used Americolor super red. Worked great! I made it the night before so it would darken some, but I don't think it did...
