I am in Australia, so we don't have the candy melts readily available, so I was wanting to know how is the best way to colour chocolate?
I need to create a teal/aqua colour and a mauve/violet colour. I can find these colours in the wilton gel colouring, but was told that I have to use an oil base one, and the only colours I can find are primary ones.
HELP!!! What can I do?
I have use the same wilton colors that I use for frosting, for chocolate, but in small quantities. I know that if you use them in large quantities they will ruin your chocolate.
Sorry I couldn't be more helpful!!
Wilton also sells oil colors for coloring candy. They should be available in the same area where you got the icing gel colors.
Buy Chefmaster candy colours (but check they are the oil based ones), these are far superior to Wilton and are stronger, better colours. I bought mine on Ebay. For the colours you want, I'd get the blue, violet and green or yellow to create your aqua. HTH!
