I wanted to try out all the old food colouring in the cupboard.  Some of it's pretty crusty by now.  Most of it was liquid and i had to use rediculous amounts to get a bright colour (especially yellow) I tried mixing everything, i think the turquoise turned out nice Smiley

I've heard of gel colours, but my baking is living in the olden days at the moment.  I did get an electric hand whisk at christmas though Cheesy If anyone has any suggestions of where i can get hold of gel colours cheaply then that'd be great Smiley



ps. I'm amazed at all the sweetie recipes on here that i'd never heard of.  Especially peanut butter things.  I love peanut butter but it's fairly uncommon to combine it with sweet things like chocolate in the UK.

These look good. If you are in the UK, you should try indian shops near you they sell very intense food dyes, (powder) and a little goes a long long way, I got some in a shop here in ireland and they were very cheap too. They mix in very easily and as a bonus you can substitute them for coloured koolaid for koolaid dyeing.

They probably wont have a huge range of colours, but you can mix them

Those are too cute. Those are really different from the ones here (U.S) where there is more icing than cake.

As far a gel food coloring I saw some on amazon 12 for $19 bit pricey. If I wasn't on a diet I'd have to try some

Happy cooking!

Yes, I am always amazed at how unique peanut butter use is in the US compared to others. I would be willing to bet that most in the US don't even think of it for an ingredient in savory items. (must admit an addiction to peanut butter in sweets myself)

Also will admit to the overuse of icings as noted by earlier poster -- I love the look of these with the beautiful cakeyness showing through.

I haven't tried any of them, I've just kept it bookmarked for future reference. It has dust and pastes on there  Smiley
