Annabakescakes , yes it did turn red! It was light red yesterday but now its bright red! However, I don't always have americolor available so the koolaid trick is the ticket for times that I don't!! Thank you!!
I hate dealing with RED icing! I have colored my icing and it is red, just not a vibrant red that I was looking for. I have used americolor red in my buttercream. What can I do to get it that bright red?
Well, to me is bad. Its tastes better than store bought but nothing like what is normal for me. That is the recipe I use and its usually smooth as silk. But, I'm guessing I got a hold of some of this 6x instead of 10x like some have been posting about lately.No, if I had had my icing before I would not be happy...guess that answers it doesn't it?!?! Thank you both!!
I know this has been a problem for some lately and I just wasn't thinking about it at the time. I have a cake with butter-cream already on it and its GRITY!!! Its due tomorrow, should I scrap the icing off and make more or leave it?? what would you do? I know, I know I should have tasted it before I iced the cake but I'm diabetic and I was trying to save myself from a diabetic coma..LOL!! thanks
here is a simple chocolate cake that I did for a male friend. Simple and masculine. This is one of the first cakes that I did so its not totally smooth. the band around the bottom was rolled buttercream.
