Does anyone use the powdered color in buttercream icing? Or is it primarily for petal dusting? I have the perfect color of mint green in a dry form that I was wondering would work mixed in buttercream. I mean I have gels but I'll have to mix colors to get what I want and this is perfect.
Just wondering...any tips would be helpful!
I use the powdered colors in my buttercream and cream cheese icings, but only when I need really deep vibrant colors.
If I know it has to be dark, I start with the powdered color right from the beginning. If the color doesn't come out dark enough then I add gel color.
Adding powdered color later is an iffy situation for me. Sometimes I get spots or blobs of color.
I've found when I need dark blues, greens or reds it helps and doesn't mess up the flavor.
