Try Americolor instead Dec 15, 2011
By M. Williams
I have used this coloring several times and always end up with a weird purple fondant instead. I even have a hard time making gray. You could use the method of mixing the dye to the melted marshmellows or using dark modeling chocolate with it to give it a base (Google: How to make Black Fondant) but from what I've read Americolor has a better black dye. I use Wilton products all the time but this one is a dud.

Test a small amount first... Dec 22, 2011
I just finished making a huge batch of buttercream frosting using my typical recipe, I tasted the untinted version and was satisfied. Unfortunately for me I did not do a small test amount before applying this Christmas Red to the entire batch - it has completely spoilt the frosting, leaving it with a harsh, very unpleasant after taste. I have purchased cakes from Costco in the past and have learned to avoid anything that has red frosting as I get the exact same taste. I also did not find this to be anywhere close to a Christmas red, perhaps I did not use enough, but given the resulting taste having only achieved a pinkish red, I can only imagine what a horrible tasting mess you would be left with if you tried to achieve a real red - my frosting ended up being inedible!

Black Food coloring Mar 19, 2012
By Nicole Douglas
I had to use a lot of food coloring to get the black color I really wanted. I finally achieved a pretty good color.
Haven't used for icing or food, but... May 21, 2013
Ok, I haven't used this for icing, I don't bake a lot, don't really have the time, but with the experiences I've had, I'd use it in a heartbeat for icing. I have been highlighting my hair to get some blonde in it, my hair is naturally medium brown. I have a lot of brassiness and was using purple toning shampoo, but it got to be too expensive for me and was not moisturizing enough. I read online that I could make my own using food coloring and a good shampoo, so I bought the cheapie 4 pack of liquid from a local grocery store, and it was a pain in the butt to create the purple I needed, and my shampoo was then greatly diluted. I ended up finding some of this at a local store (it was less expensive at the store, but didn't have as many colors as Amazon), and such a small amount mixed with my shampoo and conditioner produced the color I was looking for and my shampoo still had a creamy consistency. This has been working great for me in my shampoo. I love that I can get a deep, rich color with just a little bit of this.
I gave it a 4, since I've never used it yet for its intended purpose, and I can't say how well it performs in food items. But now, when I do bake, I don't think I'll ever use the liquid stuff again, this stuff is so concentrated and really doesn't water down anything.
love it May 16, 2013

this works so much better than liquid food coloring. A little goes a long way.
My frosting colors are so much better.
