I am making a guitar cake and covering it in MMF. I want to make it red, but it is really difficult to not get pink when adding red coloring to white fondant. I know that I can mix red gel color with an extract with alcohol to paint the red color on the fondant. I like to use almond, but I think for the amount I need it will add way too much extra flavor. Is there another neutral ingredient that i can add to increase the volume without dramatically changing the taste? I thought maybe water or light corn syrup. My kitchen is stocked with the at-home cook basics. I really dont want to make a special trip to the store, so "normal" readily ingredients are preferred. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!
