Is powder colouring any good for baking/cakes?

Sorry, only just came back to this! If you mix the powder with vodka it makes a liquid which might distribute better through the mixture. I use it for painting onto fondant but never tried it to colour the mixture.
Have you made the cake? How did it turn out?

Vodka, mmm red vodka!! Haha, why would/could that work?!

Unlikely, although I've never tried it. You could try making it into a liquid using vodka (no, really grin ) and using that, but I'm not sure the colour would be strong enough.

Thought I might give a red velvet cake a whirl but I only have red powder colouring, and I can't get to the shops for any colouring gels or liquids.

So I was wondering if anyone knows if it might work?
