AmeriColor Soft Gel Paste Food Coloring--Super Black

AmeriColor Soft Gel Paste Food Coloring--Super Black

Use these bright, vivid colors for your cakes, cookies, and desserts. They will look spectacular. These gels are much nicer than the liquids and more economical too.

 
Try these bright color gels instead of the liquids you buy from the store.  You will be amazed.  These are concentrated gels; just a drop from the easy-squeeze bottle will do.  And the colors are brighter and prettier than what you have seen before. 

Each bottle contains 3/4-ounce color gel, larger than many of the store liquids.

Even if you only occasionally decorate cookies or cakes, you still use colors.  Now you can use more colors, easy colors, without spending a lot of money.  A bottle of these gels actually costs less than the inexpensive liquids in the stores.  And because they are concentrated, they will last much longer.

Tips for making great icings:

1. Start with enough icing to cover the entire cake.  Matching shades later can be difficult.
2. Squeeze a single drop into the icing.  Add a little more until you get the right color.
3. Deep colors such as red may take more food coloring to achieve.  To use less coloring for black and brown, start with chocolate icing.
4. Don't get your icing too dark.  Color tends to deepen over time.
5. Royal icing often takes more food coloring than buttercream to reach the same shade.

Note: If you use these gel colors instead of liquids to color sugar crystals, mix a dab of gel with a drop of water on a spoon and then stir it into a cup of sugar crystals.

Editor's note: Black is always a problem color but this is what is used by most professional bakeries.  Be prepared to use a higher concentrationthough that may be acceptable since in most applications, you dont need much black icing.  It works better in a denser frosting like royal icing than in a buttercream frosting.  One year we made 36 black cupcakes with buttercream and enough to stack it on the cupcakes.  With that volume of icing, it took over a half a bottle of color and the result was a dark slate, not deep black.-- Dennis Weaver
