I am making the Red Velvet Cake from Nigella's Kitchen book for my sisters birthday cake. However, I was not able to get the red food colouring paste which she recommends, I could only get the spectral paste concentrate from Sugarflair. How should I adapt the recipe to incorporate it?

I am making this cake for our son's wedding. the cake is to be covered with marzipan and soft icing. The recipe states the cake will last a similar time to a rich fruit cake. Please could you confirm how many weeks this is from (a) baking and (b) covered with icing and (c) once it is cut? Thank you.
