The vibrant matt shades in the range are fantastic for those of you looking to add a pop of colour to your cakes and bakes. Unlike many other food colourings, they can brighten up icing without changing its consistency or flavour; simply add a small amount of powder to your icing and blend using a spatula. Make sure the colour is evenly distributed and continue to add the colour until you achieve that bright and beautiful shade you’re looking for.
On the other hand, the beautiful pearl food colouring powders are perfect for making your cakes shimmer, shine and sparkle! Lightly apply a small amount over your cake surfaces, icing or sugar decorations to leave a lovely subtle lustre effect, perfect for making special occasion cakes extra special. Or if you need a bit of a bolder shine, the 4 metallic shades in the range are wonderful for leaving a sophisticated metallic sheen on cake surfaces and decorations, great for creating stylish festive cakes that are sure to impress.
And if you can’t quite choose between colour and sparkle then, well, why should you? Simply finish your colourful creation with a coating of pearl shimmer powder over the top for a bold, glistening finish.
Best of all, these food colouring powders are so versatile and simple to use that they’re perfect for cake decorators with all levels of experience. For a bit of inspiration, try brushing your favourite pink pearl shade on a selection of sugar roses and flowers to create a gorgeous, light-catching finish. You could also get the kids involved and create some shimmering pink princess cupcakes or paint some sparkling Teal powder on a selection of sugar under-the-sea decorations for Little Mermaid fans.
So, whether you’re looking to give your cakes a beautiful metallic, colourful matt or shimmering pearl finish, these fabulous food colouring powders are sure to have something for every occasion. Give them a go and see what designs you can come up with.
