Colored layers

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I would like to do a cake with the cake itself being different colors for sack layer. How do I color the batter? Do I use gel coloring? How would I get a true red? Thank you, Eva

I have done two rainbow cakes.  I used grocery store food colors because the liquid is actually easier to mix into the batter than gels.  For a true red I used a bit of lorann red velvet emulsion because it stays true without going pink.  HTH

Life begins at 325° F, and, yes, that IS powdered sugar in my hair.
