THE BOTTLE SAYS IT IS USED TO RESORE THE COLOR OF ICING. HOW AND WHEN WOULD YOU USE THIS PRODUCT. (SORRY, I'M NEW TO ALL OF THIS).

Hi.I use it to make fondant or sugarpaste . The recipe that I use requires 15ml. I was told that it's used for keeping the fondant soft & pliable.HTH icon_smile.gif

If your paste icing colors are dried out, you're supposed to be able to add some glycerine to fix the consistency. It's never worked for me, and I figure if the color is old enough to be drying out, I should probably spring a buck or two to replace it.

You can use glycerine in royal icing to prevent it from drying so hard. You can also brush it over fondant if you want a nice shiney glaze

I've noticed that when I make MMF without glycerine the color doesn't look as vivid. So I guess it does help with color.

Like redpanda said, you're suppose to add to the color paste & restore it. I've done it successfully when I needed that color (it was one that came in a Wilton bday pack) and it worked like a charm. It did take more than I thought it would though
