I had this problem yesterday. I added Wilton's purple gel to my BC and it was a pale greyish purple. When I added more and finally got the right colour, the frosting was bitter. I had to dump it. I also have the same challenges with wilton's pink gel food colouring. By the time I get the colour I want, the icing is very bitter. I'm thinking of switching it americolor.
