Can ganache be colored? I have someone who wants an all chocolate cake, but wants black icing. I can do chocolate buttercream and color black, but can you color chocolate ganache black?
Hmm, I believe adding gel coloring will make it curdle. There are those food coloring for chocolates, maybe that would work. There are also chips that you can add to color chocolate.
Thanks Rylan! I'm sure buttercream is fine, I just thought maybe I could recommend something she hasn't had before. I suppose I could do a trial run with chips or the chocolate coloring, and see how it comes out.
Here is the product I was reffering to incase you want to have a general idea: http://shopchefrubber.com/product.php?productid=4215&cat=1147&page=1
Also, one company (they make FDA approved dusts) told me that I mix white petal dust to melted white chocolate (cream colored ones) to whiten it. Maybe black petal dusts would work on dark chocolate.
what about candy coloring?
Americolor makes a product that can be added to chocolate along with their gel paste colors to color chocolate without it seizing.
Wilton has black candy melts out now... not sure how they'd work with ganache since they're not 'real chocolate'
