Does anyone know anything about these? I am in love with powdered food colors.. What makes the crystal colors different from other powdered colors? They are definitely more expensive, but if they are awesome I am totally buying some. Thanks for any thoughts!! icon_smile.gif

I use them, I just buy mine directly from they have a wonder line of colors that can be doubled as petal dust, they are fda approved and made in the USA they are no more expensive then petal dusts, cause the package is bigger, oh and there is no fillers. They also, make a pearl dust in a white (they call it silver) and gold that is edible.

That said, take a look at some of my pictures all my gp flowers have beths colors on them and there is just no match. My suggestion is if you want to try it, purchase a container or two and give it a whirl.

CK owns Crystal Colors? I thought that was a business all it's own. Anyone know the answer to this?

I bought crystal colours for petal dust because they are the only kosher brand I can find. They are very good.

Well they sell them.. I never heard of them before seeing them on Country Kitchen Sweetart.. I shouldn't have abbreviated the CK.. I didn't even think of CK the company. icon_redface.gif

I am glad to hear that they are a good product. I have just recently started using powdered colors to color fondant since I was sick of the fading reds even with americolor super red.

Do they blend better than the regualr powdered colors?

Thanks, Jeanne, I didn't know that. I also got mine from

Beth Parvu, who owns Sugarpaste, is a wonderful vendor who is always willing to answer questions regarding her products.

And they're charging the same price, so I will stick with her, instead of buying from a major corporation (nothing personal, I like the people at CK; I just like to see small businesses make money, too).
