made these dinky little cakes for dd's afternoon tea party this afternoon - ladybirds, or meant to be.

Bought red food colouring for the purpose but it only turns things pink - how do you make red icing?????

thanks for any help

Is it liquid or paste? If paste then you just need more, and to leave the icing to sit (well wrapped) for a while before using it.

If it's liquid you have no chance, sorry (buy ready-coloured icing, it's easier wink)
