I swear by CK paste. Even my black fondant doesn't taste bitter.

Use concentrated electric colors - only take a few drops to get a bold color.

To get red, I start with white frosting and add a goodly amount of either Wilton or Americolor Yellow and Orange, then I put in a good amount of Americolor Super Red. It never seems to have a bad taste and always comes out very bright.

I agree on the Americolor red. The icing on the cake in my photos was done with it and no icky taste.

I use lucks liqua-gel colors and they have no taste or smell. Just used their super red and royal blue in my cupcake batter and fondant cupcake toppers yesterday and there is no change in flavor. I will be posting pictures soon! icon_smile.gif
