Working on valentine cookies and using a brand new small tub of Wilton Rose gel color. The jar has an off-putting smell that has carried over into my batch of icing. Is there a different brand of deep rose color that is recommended that will not pass on that unpleasant taste to royal icing? Thanks.

Some brands, especially in red, purple and black, have stronger off-putting smells and flavors than others. I use Chefmaster and AmeriColor, and I find the former has the best flavor in these colors.

I meant it might have been bad to begin with.  I don’t use wilton to color my icing.  Complain to Wilton, and buy americolor.
