Hi. I would like to cover my cake with white chocolate ganache. Is it possible to color it? What types of color would I use?

Yes, you can color white chocolate. You have to use special oil-based colors made for coloring chocolate.

Yes, I think i better change it. That pic is there almost a year, and lately ppl are commenting so much on it. It was a cold oven, my kids are not in the kitchen when I open a hot oven door. I was adjusting the racks and he saw the light, so he tried climbing in.

Thanx prterrell. I'll get those colors tomm.

For ganache (which has enough liquid that the chocolate is already watered down past the seizing point) you can use any type of coloring you like. Oil based (or powdered) is only necessary if you are trying to color just chocolate and water would make it seize.

Thanx, KoryAK! That's great to hear. I love not having to buy extra stuff.
