Colour:

The matt dusts are perfect for adding a pop of colour to cake mixes, sugar paste, buttercream, and royal icing. Unlike many other food colourings, the Colour Splash matt dusts can add vibrant colour to cake mix or icings without changing its consistency or flavour. To use, simply add a small amount of your choice of dust colour and blend using a spatula, making sure the colour is evenly distributed to avoid streaks. Continue to add the dust in small amounts until you achieve your perfect shade!

To colour sugar paste, simply create a small hole in the centre, add a small amount of dust and knead the paste until it is evenly coloured. Continue to add dust and knead the paste to build up the colour.

Lustre:

The Colour Splash pearl dusts are perfect for adding a subtle touch of colour decorations while giving a beautiful lustred finish. Lightly apply a small amount over your cake surfaces, icings or sugar decorations to leave a lovely subtle lustre effect that works beautifully on wedding and special occasion cakes. For a beautiful decoration, brush your favourite pearl shade on a selection of our SugarSoft roses to create a pretty, light-catching finish.

Dust:

With so many shades and finishes available in the range, there’s something to suit every project. To add instant colour to your cake surface, icing or decoration, apply a small amount using a dusting brush and gently sweep it over. You can apply more in small amounts to build up the colour if necessary. Use the metallic silver dust for a stylish understated look, layer on a matt shade for bolder colour or add a coating of pearl dust over the top for shimmering finish.
