Have you ever tried to make red icing and the color isn't what you expect? This past Valentine's Day, I tried making red buttercream frosting, and it ended up looking like orange lipstick.
I did some research and found that a drop or two of this unexpected color can help deepen reds. Watch the video to see what color that is!
Another tip, wait a bit to let the color set. Adding loads of red dye is not the answer. Whatever you do, resist the urge to keep adding lots of dye.
