A Red Velvet Thanksgiving!
Every year, my company has a Thanksgiving dinner for our employees. The company buys the Turkeys (four this year!) and some sides, and every else brings a dish. There is A LOT of food! This year, I decided to give cupcakes another go. I really wanted to make them look like mums but when I opened my new pack of icing tips I realized I didn't have the right one. I also couldn't get the icing as dark as I wanted! Anyone know how to make deep colors with icing?? But in any case, I posted the pictures to my flickr account so head on over and take a look! They are red velvet cupcakes!

What kind of food coloring are you using? If you pick up some paste/gel food coloring you can get more intense colors. A little goes a long way, and it stains something awful, but with some toothpicks you can keep it off your fingers. It's what I use when I want REAL color.

I don't think you can buy it at the grocery store, but check the craft store with the cake decorating supplies or go to a bakery specialty store.

I used gel. :( I actually found it at Super Target. It was in little squeeze tubes. I used little tubs of it for the halloween cupcakes. Maybe that's the problem. Maybe the tubs are better.
