I want my gingerbread to look like stone/cement. Would I be best to add color (white/grey)to the mix before baking or do color after? Would I do a vanilla/color mix like I do on fondant or is there another technique for cookies? I dont' want to compromise the structure.
K- I tried mixing a bit of black and lots of white in a light gingerbread in the mixing process. Color looks awesome now, but I"ll see how it bakes up!
I've never tried to color gingerbread dough. Would like to see picture of your result..
Unfortunately it did not work. The Wilton white coloring did something to the structure of the dough... I had to use a lot. So, I guess I will try the recipe without the color and paint it afterwards...
Try painting it with a black/gray egg wash before baking,I know it works for other colors so I'm assuming it works for black.
