Liquid Colours: These water-based dyes can be used to create magical watercolour effects and gorgeous pastel hues. These really could be the perfect option for creating a magical unicorn cake. Plus, they come ready prepared in small bottles, just drop single drops into your icing sugar.
Oil-based powder: A powdered form of food colouring is the perfect solution when you are, asking something that cannot have any liquid added to it.
Liquid-Gel: Liquid Gel Food colourings come in a small bottle and are a viscous gel. The colour is more concentrated than liquid dyes, and the smallest amount can really go a long way. Also, because less liquid will be added to your bake, this makes them ideal for making candies and confectionaries.
Airbrush: For those who are serious cake decorators, then there is nothing that will achieve the desired effect quite like an airbrush. There are so many bright and funky colours to choose from, and these do create a fantastic painted impact like no other. If you do not have the airbrush equipment, colour mist is a great way to achieve that stunning finish, without the technology.
Flavourings: This range also includes a massive selection of flavourings, which are perfect for adding a tasty dimension to your culinary creations. Whether you are looking for extract, oils or syrup, you are sure to find the right flavour for you.
Do you have any tips for using food colouring?
It is essential to add your food colouring in tiny amounts, building up the intensity of the colour over time and mixing it throughout. Whilst it is always possible to add more you cannot take any away, and it is easy to go too bright or too dark. Also remember that colours darken over time, and after baking, so sometimes it is essential to allow your bake to stand for around ten minutes to get the shade that you desire.
Create your coloured mixtures using natural light, as this will allow for accurate perception. If you do not have the colour that you need to hand, then mix colours together. It is also important to have a bit of knowledge regarding what colours blend together, and this will also allow you to gain a better understanding of the colour wheel and what matches. For example, mix equal amounts of blue and yellow to make green, red and yellow to make orange, red and blue to make purple and so on.
