Helpful Hints Using Food Coloring


Using Food Coloring        

Most of us grew up with McCormick® liquid food colorings, which are okay. But I prefer paste food colorings, Ateco® makes good, professional-quality colors.

If using a paste, test with a tiny bit on the end of a toothpick by dipping it into the paste, then into whatever you're coloring, probably a frosting of sorts. Continue mixing frosting, adding more color as desired.

Whatever quantity you're used to with liquids will be substantially reduced when working with pastes, as they're much stronger colorants. This stuff stains horribly, so keep paper towels handy and wear an apron just in case.
