Hi guys, after spending hours and hours on here looking at all the fantastic work, I've come to the conclusion that the colour range available in the U.K sucks! So I would like to know the best range of vibrant colours I could order from the U.S or wherever.
I have the variety pack of liqua-gel colors from Chefmaster and I love it. But i'm curious what everyone ls uses.
My preference is Chefmaster Liqua Gel. It's very concentrated so it takes very little. You can get red and black without letting it sit over night to intensify.
I've never tried it, but many in my caking circle love Americolors. Very concentrated - black looks like black not sickly grey; red looks intense. I'm thinking of ordering some for Xmas baking. Beats the Wilton stuff by far.
Americolor has to sit overnight or for several hours to intensify. It's not nearly as concentrated as chefmaster. Chefmaster will give you intense color immediately!
i have to disagree with you on that one slean . . I love my little pots of sugarflair gel
I also have the Americolor airbrush colours, i got the neon ones as there really vibrant, fun for kids cakes
For those who've used Chefmaster (I haven't yet, but just put it on my Christmas list), does their "Red" have a bitter taste? Can you get away with using so little that the taste of the final product isn't affected too much?
Chefmaster does not have a bitter taste.
I find the sugarflair colours a bit limited, I wanted a vivid turquoise, I'm quite happy with their reds and black. Where did you get your americolor from Cath?
i havent noticed a bitter taste with chefmaster reds. But have with the black. If you use too much.
