Hi, I need some help from all of you experts out there! What brand of food coloring do you recommend that will not fade quickly? I'm making bright red hearts out of fondant and I want to make sure they stay bright red.
Americolor is my choice. I love to airbrush dark colors like red and black though.
Keep them in the dark! Seriously, put them in a box and tuck them in a cupboard away from sunlight........even indirect sunlight will fade them, and normally it doesn't fade evenly!
Americolor Super Red. I've never had a problem with it fading.
whatever brand you use. keep out of sunlight.. all colors fade...at some point.. i use americolor and wilton and other brands.. keep out of overhead lite and sunlite .. hth
i agree, i've had some issues with wilton, purple turning blue, pink fading, i did make red with americolor to, i had red red, in a large batch i had to use alot, but i it was a large batch, i need to order some yikes better get some red and green for Christmas, and the wilton red tastes awful
The Americolor super red is better than the red red, it is more concentrated. You still have to use quite a bit, but way less than other reds. It will stay bright/dark red for what you need it for.
I colored mine pink then added the red. Helps get it there faster and less color.
