I am making a guitar cake and covering it in MMF. I want to make it red, but it is really difficult to not get pink when adding red coloring to white fondant. I know that I can mix red gel color with an extract with alcohol to paint the red color on the fondant. I like to use almond, but I think for the amount I need it will add way too much extra flavor. Is there another neutral ingredient that i can add to increase the volume without dramatically changing the taste? I thought maybe water or light corn syrup. My kitchen is stocked with the at-home cook basics. I really dont want to make a special trip to the store, so "normal" readily ingredients are preferred. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!

Well, I couldnt find my paintbrush and I ended up using a paper towel to "brush on" an almond extract and gel food coloring mixture. It was not super easy but it got the job done. I had a real tough time covering the guitar with fondant. How do you get into those little cracks? It was a bit of a disaster as far as that went. Luckily this is for a friend and not any paying customer :) It was still cute overall....
