Chefmaster true red gives a great red, that you can combine with a bit of black to get a burgundy.

Where do you live? What company colors you are using?

i live in NY. about 90 miles north of NYC. most of the stuff I get comes from micheals. I have been using wilton color gel.

Yeah, they tend to give bad flavor with darker colors. If you can't get anything else you can try
the wilton no taste red, but the pigments of chefmaster and americolor are best for darker colors
