Cream ProGel Food Colour Chart
Yesterday our lovely customer Gill requested a colour chart for Creams in the ProGel Range by Rainbow Dust so I put together this quick example of our cream coloured food colourings. Pro Gel Food Colour is a high quality food colour that requires very little to create beautiful vibrant colours meaning your sugarpaste doesn’t go sticky and flavour is not effected.
I love cream colours, they are beautiful colours to use in Weddings & Christenings but also great for Vintage themes and Teddy Bears. You can’t really go wrong with them and they are a must for any cake decorators collection. From my examples I would start with Caramel & Chestnut as you can see in the pictures there are many shades and depth of colour you can achieve with just one colour.
Mixing Colours: I always start by mixing one piece of Sugarpaste to the darkest colour I can achieve with that specific shade. This allows you to measure and weigh your quantities against the amount of white sugarpaste you add to it allowing you to re-create a colour easily with easy maths.
For example: If you use 1 part dark colour to 4 parts white you can up the size easily but achieve exactly the same colour for colouring cakes. If you colour too much sugarpaste don’t throw it away, seal it in a airtight zip bag and keep it in a Tupperware box it will keep to the best before of the sugarpaste or you can also freeze it to add an extra 6 months of life to it!
I love the Rainbow Dust ProGel Colours and I am really pleased to say we stock the entire range on our website as well as discounted sets.
