Red buttercream for the horny devil cake

The red buttercream i have made for this has a bitter taste. I think its because of the amount of food colouring. Could you tell me how to avoid this

Hi Briege2212

Squire’s kitchen do an Extra red gel paste, here is their link http://www.cakedecoratingstore.co.uk/red-orange-colouring/. Red and black are always very difficult to make because your’re adding to such a pale base. It’s always better to make the icing up the day before to allow the colour to develop.
