I haven't made a cake in a year or so. My daughters b-day party is Saturday and she wants me to make a red/black/white cake with Zebra print. I've seen several posts on here before about making RED buttercream, but I've been looking and searching for about 30 minutes with no luck. Thanks in advance for any and all help.
Use AmeriColor brand rather than Wilton . That will help a lot. It takes less dye.
Americolor is better. I do have the no taste Wilton and it isn't bad. I did read a tip on here to start with a little blue, I think. It helps darken and you do not have to add as much red.
Thank you! I do have americolor and no taste. Blue?? REally?? I may be crazy, but is there something about koolaid???
I've read you can use black cherry koolaid before. Haven't tried it myself, and just remember if you do your icing will be flavored that.
I never thought about using koolaid o_0 I may have to try that for fun!
If you have a business, I'd recommend Lucks Liqua-Gel colors and buying them direct (have to have a tax id of some variety). They're gel colors are condensed so you use less to get true color and they don't bleed or have any taste. They're also like 1/2 the price of americolors if you buy them direct. They come in 10.5oz bottles and the average price is $4. I always have one of every color. Love them!
