Combine this coloring with piping gel or frosting to create uniquely decorative topping, or add to chocolate cake batter for a beautiful and delicious red velvet cake!

    The tomato red food coloring is a great value for the price. I am constantly making red velvet cupcakes and cakes. This product is best used for coloring cake batter.

    This was pretty good- not great for Red Velvet. Used a few times and had to switch back to AmeriColor Gel. This came out dull for the cupcakes shown. However I just don't like to put too much food coloring in our desserts- but you might be able to get the same vibrant effect if you added a few more tablespoons then suggested!

    this dye worked great, i was skeptical with the price but it works just as good as any other red dye I've used. i use it for red velvet cupcakes that i donate to a homeless shelter. i am very satisfied and will definitely order more when this one is gone.

    I used this product for my Strawberry cupcakes. At first I only used a cap full which did not achieve my desired color. So the second batch I used 1 Tablespoon of the Tomato Red food coloring and they turned out perfect.

    Not exactly what I was looking for. I thought this would be a great product when making my red velvet cakes;however, it wasn't. The shade obtained was not what I was trying to acheive.

    This is more food coloring than you can really imagine for the cost. You will find in the stores that food coloring can cost much more than this for a tiny bottle of this.

    from Sweet Pea's Cupcakery Cafe Posted on

    This is a good liquid food coloring. It was true red as egg paint but too orange toned red in cupcake batter but was correct with burgundy gel paste coloring.

    only liquid coloring as egg paint on skull cookies

    Awesome value, great product, not what you want for making cakes unless you are shooting for a cake that is a creamy tomato soup colored. It doesnt leave an aftertaste or that normal red food coloring bitterness

    from RaynneStarr Posted on

    This says that it is a tomato red food coloring, but it is closer to a deep reddish orange. It is rightly named "tomato" red because it is the color of the inside of a tomato. It is not exactly red so if that is what color you are looking for than this is not the food coloring for you. You can "doctor" it up with a deep red paste coloring.

    This is definitely tomato red food coloring. Do not use if you are trying to color something red, like red velvet or red frosting. This has a very burnt orange look to it.

    from Abigail's Bakeshop Posted on

    love this red food coloring. unbeatable price for a gallon. slightly off the color tho so we add extra.but works great for holiday cookies and red velvet cakes

    from Designer Cakes Posted on

    The amount of coloring for the price is unbeatable. The color, on the other hand, is a little off. It is not a rich, deep red. It is more of an orange-red. I still add a few drops of gel color to the red velvet cake batter in addition to this product. The flavor/ taste is fine.

    from Sweet Treats Bakery Posted on

    The red food color is great for red velvet, but I suggest still adding a couple drops of red gel. If not, the cakes had a orange tint to it.

    Tomato Red Food Coloring - 1 Gallon Great value! I use a lot of red food coloring for my red velvet cakes and this is perfect.

    from Ruffled Feathers Posted on

    Watery Disappointment. We bake a lot of red velvet cake and cupcakes, and this did not bake bright red. It's nice that this product is so inexpensive because I threw it away.

    Great price, there is nothing truly wrong with this product, but I have found that gel colors seem to achieve a much better effect when it comes to baking. However, we use this In a concoction we make to dye our Easter eggs....and for that it is GREAT!

    Excellent red food colouring, we use it with the blue and yellow to make all secondary colours for our icing for decorating ice cream cakes.

    This is great valve, compared to the small bottle you get at the grocery store. The red color turns out great in my red velvet cupcakes. i would recommend the product.

    Worked well for what we used it for, however the would have preferred a brighter red. When mixed it has more of an orange tint. Not a really bright red food coloring.

    from Glad Tidings Church Posted on

    Love this red food coloring. We make red velvet cakes and cupcakes. I use 2 oz to get the red I want but it doesn't change my recipe at all and this has been way more profitable than any other coloring I have found.

    from Kays Kreations Posted on

    I love this red food coloring. I make a lot of candy apples and red velvet cakes works great. I usually order 2 gallons at a time!

    from Toy's Sweets Posted on

    My hands invariably turn red when I use this because... that's what happens when you use food coloring. But no issues, it is tomato red, so not pink-red.

    Posted on

    This is hands down an amazing value. The best food coloring I have purchased. The color is extremely vibrant. We use lots of food coloring so I was happy to come across this large size. I will continue to re-order as needed and highly recommend this product!

    The color is as it states, tomato red. I purchased it to use while making red velvet cake, however the color isnt strong enough on its own to get a solid "RED" color desired for a red velvet cake. Quality is there, just not ideal for my purpose.

    from Sugar Coated Bakery Posted on

    haven't used it yet but it looks like it will work perfectly for my red velvet cake, I am looking forward to trying it and hope it is as good as all of the other items I'v ordered from here!

    from Cakes by Ashley Posted on

    Excellent quality product food color. Very good price for one gallon. Very useful food color in my kitchen for many dishes. Local distributor don't have one gallon color for this price.

    from The Boardroom Restaurant Posted on

    i ordered this because i do alot of red velvet cakes to see how it would do and even though its alot cheaper than buying small bottles of food coloring the color was not as dark as i would have liked it to be so i still had to add some of my regular food color.

    Posted on

    This was a disappointment. It is much more orange than red. If you're going to say its RED, it should be red. Would not recommend. Also, very watery.

    from Debi's Diamond Street Bakery Posted on

    This red food color is definitely a tomato orange color more than red but adding more than necessary (for redvelvet cake/cupcakes) you can get close to a bright red color. I normally have to add a darker gel color along with my recipe.

    from Chef TJ Dubs Culinary Arts Posted on

    This product is large and cheap, but it is definitely not suitable for making red velvet cake, as it claims in the description. This dye doesn't yield a true red, no matter how much you add. It gives more of a tomato soup hue.

    Posted on

    For the price you pay, there isnt much to argue about this product. It produces a more brighter color than i expected but nontheless works fine

    Posted on

    This coloring is good, and the shipping surprisingly was not that expensive, but in cakes and baked goods it comes out a little orangy-bronzish, so you just have to add a little more.

    Posted on

    The red food coloring is a little lighter than I expected but it still gets the job done. I primarily use it in my red velvet cake and have to double the amount but it still is a nominal price compared to anywhere else. Well worth it!

    from iBaked Posted on

    Like most of the previous reviewers, I bought this food color because of the price for quantity. However, I was really disappointed in the color output as my red velvet cake took on a different hue than I was expecting. The output was more light orange than red even with my increasing the recommended amount needed.

    Thanks for your review! We recommend that you gradually apply the food coloring until you have your desired red color.

    I like the fact that you don't have to use as much red dye and your cakes for icing and I also don't have a aftertaste from this product

    from Deions Treats & Sweets Posted on

    I was spending way too much money on red food coloring buying from grocery stores. I save a lot buying from webstaurants. I have high demand for Red Velvet cake and this is the perfect product to buy.

    from Kay's Homemade Goodies Posted on

    I bout this coloring to color my red velvet cake. I tend to like my red velvet cakes to be more of a brick red. I dont have to use much of this coloring tonget that look. Great and wont need much. As any other food coloring it will stain.

    Posted on

    So worth the price! I make a lot of red velvet cakes and cupcakes so food coloring can get expensive. This works so beautifully well for all my red velvet needs

    Posted on

    tomato red food coloring is the cheapest i have seen. making red velvet cakes, cupcakes needs a lot of food coloring. buying this will end your worries

    Posted on

    Unbelievable value on food coloring! The local grocery store will charge you as much for an OUNCE as Webstaurant supplies for a GALLON !!! Uses for this are limitless. As so many others have mentioned, cupcakes, icing, and red velvet cake are naturals, but you can also add this to cookies, tortes, pastries, any kind of Valentines treat (just a few months away!), AND, as we use it for, Red Beer for Halloween!

    from Morton Pub Posted on

    We use this when making red velvet cake and strawberry cake as well as the icings that go with them. It doesnt take a lot so a gallon goes a long way. It works as well as any other coloring that we have tried.

    from C&S Catering Service Posted on

    When they say Tomato Red, they MEAN tomato red. I bought a gallon for use in red velvet cupcakes but they came out orange so it will be perfect for Halloween!

    from CanadianSweetsAndTreats Posted on

    When it comes to this food coloring, a little goes a long way! We use this in our red velvet cupcakes and it achieves a nice color with a minimal amount so it does not affect taste or texture.

    from Queen City Cupcakes Posted on

    I ordered two gallons of this food coloring for our red velvet cupcakes - the price is great. The color is more orangy than red, but our customers don't seem to mind!
