So I was asked to make a cake for my boyfriend's cousin's birthday who is turning 21. He wants his cake to be red. The only problem I have, is everytime I use red food coloring, the fondant/gumpaste tastes AWFUL! I know that there is red-red no taste icing color, but that never gets me the desired shade of red I want. Help!

Just buy red SatinIce. It's tastes like vanilla.

You can also use chefmaster liqua gel colors. It takes very little and no bad taste.

Pre-colored fondant is the way to go for Red. Most all manufacturers have it.

I get red by making my fondant pink and then adding the no taste red.
