I use my airbrush to get the deep colors without the bitterness of using tons of food coloring.

I have the same problem with getting my cupcakes a bright color, but that is because I use real butter in my frosting, and butter doesn't like to take the color too much. Sorry I can't help you with that one, but I think if you use a crisco based frosting, that might help. I use wilton or americolor.

Thanks for the replies ladies. But what I meant is get deep colour on cupcake batter, not the frosting icon_biggrin.gif

I did a groovy cake and dyed the batter using Americolor gels. It baked up amazingly vivid and when they cute into it it looked tye-dyed. They loved it. I have pics of it on my cell but have not transfered to the computer to upload onto here. I will try to get to that today.
