I have searched and read so many thread and still haven't found an answer so I am hoping some of you wonderful CCers can help.
I would like to make a chocolate Dora for the top of my DD's 2nd Birthday cake.
1. How do I go about coloring the chocolate? Before, after, or during tempering?
2. Do the Wilton colors work if I use white chocolate or will I have to get the colored candy melts?
Hmmm....I think the answer would be to color before tempering, since tempered chocolate is so temperature sensitive. Seems like adding anything once you got your temper would ruin the temper. Or could. I'm sure there's someone out there who could say for sure...any CC chocolatier's out there?
The wilton candy colors should work fine for ya if using white chocolate.
be sure you are using candy colors and not icing colors. And I agree, add the color as you melt the chocolate.
you could also 'paint' it with colored cocoa butter
I don't think I have ever heard of candy colors instead of icing colors. I will have to see if I can find some.
