The The Bakers Dozen: "Deep Red" Color for Buttercream??
By Tomculb (Tomculb) on Wednesday, June 25, 2003 - 01:29 pm: Edit

I have a client who wants a wedding cake with buttercream that he wants to have the color of burgundy, as he says "deep red". Any thoughts on where to begin? I want to try to avoid artificial colors. Any formulas on the tried and true reduced beet juice?

Use powered food coloring... I repeat! I've tried everything and it is the only thing that makes a good deep color without a disgusting flavor or change in consistency.

Use powdered food coloring!

Where can one find powdered food coloring? All we have in local stores is paste or liquid (ugh!)
