Colour Mill BOOSTER oil based concentrated icing colouring enhancer 20ml
Colour enhancer for use with buttercream, ganache & chocolate
Colour Mill colours are described as 'next generation food colour'
the information below explains just how effective these specially formulated super-concentrated oil based icing colourings are - specifically designed for use with buttercream and other products that have a higher fat content
but what if you already have a range of traditional paste or gel icing colourings?
this Booster acts as a colour enhancer when added to any conventional paste or gel colours
the special formula makes your normal paste or gel colouring much more suited for buttercream, ganache, Swiss meringue, chocolate, cake mix batters etc
this is a brilliant idea and a really cost-effective way of creating your oil-based colouring when you need it
Booster works by emulsifying so allows different types of ingredients to mix
it helps disperse your colour and dye more evenly through a fat-rich medium
it improves fluidity in chocolate in a similar way to adding cocoa butter
mix approx 2-3 Booster to 1 part paste or gel colouring
conventional paste or gel colours are ideal for colouring sugarpaste icing but they do not really like fats or oils, so you often struggle to get proper colour consistency when using buttercream etc (see below*)
Colour Mill's unique blend actually loves the fats and oils in your baking and uses these oils to disperse the special formula colouring
create vibrant, consistent shades that will not fade - in fact the colours develop over time so use sparingly to begin with
