Colour Mill Oil Blends allow the colour to disperse through every part of a fat-rich medium, including the sugar, eggs, and butter. This is because all water-based materials have been removed and replaced with bake & cake friendly oils; these oils mix through much better than water-based gels (which we know water repels from the oils in your baking).
Unlike conventional gel colours, Colour Mill Oil Blend loves the fats and oils found in your baking, and uses it to disperse the special formula colouring. This results in stunningly vibrant, rich consistent shades that will not fade. It works especially great in buttercream, swiss meringue, chocolate, cake batter, ganache and sugarpastes. It also works in flower pastes, gumpastes, modelling pastes, marzipan, cake mixes, pastry, frostings, isomalt, piping gel, cake lace mixes and more.
Not only will your cakes look amazing, but Colour Mill will also help you get more colour for your money. The high concentration means you use much less than you normally would to achieve even brighter and colourful results. You only need a tiny drop at a time to build up your desired shade - we recommend using the end of a cocktail stick.
Using more drops will increase the intensity of colour and less will create softer hues. Build the colour slowly as you mix your batter to achieve your desired hue.
There are over 50 different colours to choose from, with each bottle containing 20ml.
The bottle comes with a squeeze-top dispenser lid for increased accuracy. Colour Mill can be diluted with alcohol to form an edible paint. Please note, due to the oil in the colours, it may take longer than average to dry.
