The best one to use is the one that is readily available to you and gives you the results you want. icon_smile.gif

Personally I much prefer Americolor, just because I like squeeze bottles better than pots. Easier to use without making a mess. I've also heard that they are better quality than Wilton in terms of the colors being true and long-lasting, and that Wilton is the most likely to taste bitter when you use a lot of it. I've never had any real problems with Wilton, though, and I use it sometimes depending on what colors I have on hand or which store is more convenient to get to when I need it. (There are other brands, but the Americolor is what's carried by the cake-decorating-supply stores in my area. And Wilton, of course, is carried by the big craft-supply chains.)
