I'm making a Sesame Street cake for my nephew's first birthday. The top tier will be elmo and my sister requested chocolate cake for it. We're not huge fans of buttercream so I use pastry pride for all my cakes now. I'm wondering if I use Rich's chocolate bettercreme to ice the cake cake I tint it red? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!!

Bettercreme takes color really well. Just add a little at a time like you normally would when you first start out and are not sure how much to put in. icon_smile.gif

So should I use regular bettercreme or chocolate?

Oops! I must have missed the chocolate part in the op. no, it's brown, so it will not be a true red. I'm guessing more of a burnt sienna color.
