quick question, what kind of red food color do you use in making red velvet cake? I only got ck in my pantry and the recipe call for 1-2oz red food color. I converted oz to tbsp, it appears i will need 2tbsp for 1oz and 4tbsp for 2oz... So i will use all my red ck food color for 1 batch? They also say too much food color will affect the taste.... Help! Ingredients are too expensive to waste... I need your inputs on this ladies, pretty pls icon_smile.gif

Thanks in advance icon_smile.gif

Wilton makes a no-taste red, and I believe that Americolor gel doesn't affect the taste or maybe just a teesy bit that can be masked by an extract/flavoring.

I've gotten the best result from mixing 6 spoons of water with a teaspoon of Americolors super red. Simple and cheap!!.
