Use Americolor Super Red. If you use wilton you will have to use A LOT of it. A LOT. When I made my niece's cake I use the wilton tip #233. Worked perfectly. HTH

While you have to use a ton of it, I still like using wilton's no-taste red with some red red. It cuts down a lot on the dye taste.

Keep in mind, no matter what you do, the guests will have red teeth!

I have used wiltin's no taste red mixed with Christmas red - came out great! I just used a star tip to get the furry look. Hope that helps!
