i tried to google "robbemorka" and got nothing so i can't help you since I can't find the picture.

To post a link to the picture open it up in a new internet explorer and highlight and copy the web address in the bar. (ctrl+c to copy)

Then paste it into your post on CC.

I didn't even think to look for a member on CC! I guess i was confused by the "today's robbemorka picture posting" i was thinking it was on a blog or something LOL.


As for the color, i would suggest Americolor Super Red. The gel paste is more concetrated in color than wilton and doesn't have a taste.

Are you trying to color pre-made fondant? are you making your own? are you coloring buttercream?

Actually really the easiest way to get that is to order it pre colored in Satin Ice or Fondarific, but dont' know if you have that much time.

I would buy it!
Other wise you need a LOT of good red food dye.
someone has recently posted about making fondant (mmf or mff I can't remember) with red candy melts, with great success.

if you make your own fondant you can add the red coloring to the liquids before adding any sugar. It takes a lot less color and you don't have to knead in all that color, it's already there!

Thank you for reply! I do have americolor super red, but that color seems darker, how can I get it to that shade? icon_confused.gif The cake will be using MMF, I do have some pre color red satin ice. I am starting to make de decorations now (syringe, stethoscope,nurse cap, bottle pills and pills, gauze roll with her name on it, and the little spit pan, I do not know the name for it).
Thank you again! icon_smile.gif

Americolor has a red as well as the super red. I would suggest the regular red. I agree with you that the super red comes out very dark f you put too much.
