The only gel color brand I have used is the wilton ones. I have seen color powders and squeeze bottles, etc. So just wondering what everyone else uses. I am so tired of sticking toothpicks in the color. Would much rather squeeze it inicon_smile.gif Any good brands or websites where they sell it would be great!! Thanks!
Also, pros and cons of any brands.

I have CK red powdered color and it works good when I want a darker red in my gum paste, and I have Ateco ivory in a squeeze bottle. I have to order online so I just tried a few, and they sure are better than going through a zillion tooth picks!

I spoon versus toothpick...
But I hear Americolor is great though I haven't used it. I saw it comes in a little bottle that seems squeezable. My next purchase once my Wilton colors are finished...

I just bought a couple of the Americolor brand colors a couple weeks ago, and not only do I love the way the color squeezes out, I love the brightness of the colors.
