How to I use the colors?
1 color packet per pint for light frosting (1 color packet per ½ pint for more vibrant color).
Blend color powder with dry ingredients before hydrating. For pre-made frosting, mix color powders directly into frosting or mix with a very small amount of water (approx ¼ tsp liquid to 1 ¼ tsp color to make a paste) for easy blending.
Heat and Natural Colors
Natural colors can be heat sensitive and start to fade at 200-250 degrees, resulting in more pastel colors.
For cake color and other baked goods, a recipe with a shorter bake time or lower heat is recommended (mini cupcakes, thin layered cake).
When working with heated recipes, like a gummy candy, mix colors into a liquid first and then add into the cooling phase for maximum color vibrancy.
