Our Intense colour range is extremely versatile. Let us run through how you could use one colour in multiple applications.
You can mix this in your fondant, butter cream, whipping cream, macaron batter, cake batter, ice cream, cookies, and just about any food item in the mixing stages.
Convert this into edible paints:
Use rejuvenator or Bakers spirit, high grain alcohol and convert it into edible paints that dry almost immediately. Ours are the only paste colours that are 100% mixable giving you a thick paint consistency that you can even paint opaque on just about everything including chocolate!
Use it with high grain alcohol/vodka/bakers spirit to make quick airbrush colours. The consistency should be watery and the intensity really depends on what you are looking for.
Use this to colour your butter cream:
It could be meringue-based butter cream or vegetarian butter cream, our colour mixes beautiful with the fats to give you complex and deep colours that are a dream!
Using intense colour concentrate with whipping cream:
It is advisable to tint your whipping cream with our colour and let it mature in intensity in the refrigerator for a few hours and then whip. If you are pressed for time and already have whipped cream use a small amount of the whipped cream then incorporate the colour into it and mix the coloured whipped cream to the remainder of the cream. This is advisable so your whipped cream doesn't lose volume or stiffness, due to over mixing.
Using with fondant or gum paste:
These colours mix beautifully with fondant, gum paste and flower paste or even pastillage. For extremely dark colours try mixing them and letting them mature overnight or even for a few hours to get truly intense colours. You can however use them immediately too!
With chocolate and cocoa butter:
It is NOT advisable to use these concentrates directly into melted chocolate or cocoa butter as they are not fat soluble. You can PAINT on chocolate when mixed with rejuvenator or high grain alcohol. These intense colour concentrates are TRULY INTENSE. A little goes a long way!
