Should I put a coating of red butter cream on top of chocolate? help!
Are you completely out of red? It takes a lot! I used an entire jar of Wilton's No Taste Red with a drop of burgundy...after I had already colored my buttercream rose pink to achieve an Elmo red. And my batch of icing was only 3 cups or so. It does darken after sitting of course!
I'm sorry I don't have any experience with fondant! Can you get the red color spray in a can and cover fondant or will that not stick? Do you have to use fondant or can you make a new batch of buttercream and tint that red?
I am not sure if it too late or not, but if you are not out of red, I would recommend that you make a new batch of fondant and mix your color into your fondant as you are making it. I just had to make red this week and I always make MMF so when I melt the marshmallows I will put the red dye in (I use Americolor). It does take a lot as the last post states, but you will achieve a nice red whether you want bright red or a darker color. Good luck!!
I'm completely out of red, so i think I'm going to ben franklin and by the red that's in a multi pack and use that. I'm sure it's going to taste bad, but I don't have any other options. One thing i did notice, it that yet again I'm using to much fondant to cover a cake, i had way to much left over. I feel like if I would have known the right amount to use then I could have gotten the color.
Do you have a walmart in your area? I know my local walmart now carries wilton products, so you may be able to find the wilton no taste red and just make some fondant. If it is a paying customer I would really hate seeing you use the bad tasting fondant. I did see a chart at one point (maybe on the wilton site) that states how much fondant it takes to cover a certain size cake .. it may help to google something like that for the future.
Can you get to a Michael's? They have a 40% off coupon this week (or you can use a 50% off coupon from AC Moore's there as well!) and I would suggest buying Duff's red fondant over the Wilton one. Duff's is the Fondarific product at Michael's and is very pliable and the taste is much better than Wilton's.
