The nasty "food color taste"

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Does anyone know of any good food coloring brands that the hot pink and black don't make the entire cake taste bitter? It just ruins frosting. I HATE when people ask for black or hot pink cakes b/c then I have to warn them about the bitter "red dye' taste. I asked someone in a local cake supply store and she said she knew of none that didn't have that taste.

If not, how does everyone deal with it and do you discourage black and dark pink designs b/c of it?

I swear by CK (Country Kitchen) black. I make my own balck MMF and sometimes a batch will take a whole small bottle of the coloring. No problem with the taste.

Chefmastetr liqua gel color is very concentrated so you use very little and there is no bitter taste. You also get very vibrant colors instantly with no waiting over night for it to intensify.

We use powdered food coloring, a little goes a long way so there's no taste change.
