Ok, I know there is a no taste red food chell, but in my opinion it still tastes gross. I need to make an Elmo cake in a week and am really worried about making that much red in the right shade and having it taste yucky. Please give me any tips you may have to get that red and have it taste good!!!! Thank you
I layer my buttercream on, refrigerate until it's hard and add the color layer last. That way you don't have a full quarter inch (or more) of colored buttercream to bite into. I don't like the taste of highly colored frostings. You can indeed taste it.
Have you tried the powdered color I don't think it taste as strong as liquid, gel or paste colors.
I haven't. i've never even seen those. Can I get those at Michael's or AC Moore?
I use Candy Craft powder that I get at my local cake shop or order it online.
