I've been asked to make a brightly coloured marble white chocolate mud cake using blue and green. I've never made a marble cake before and my questions are........do I just split the mixture in 2 and add blue food colour to one and green food colour to the other?? Then how do I go about the best marble effect??
Sorry if this is a very basic question but any help is greatly appreciated :
Yes, divide your mixture in two different bowls, mix in gel colour (I use Americolour for bright colours). Use a bowl scraper or large spoon to drop the two colours randomly in your cake tin. When all the cake batter is in the tin use a thin wooden sewer or something similar and swirl through the two colours to create the marble effect.
AThanks!! Random question...do u know if the Americolour would stain someone's teeth? I've had a special request to use colours that's won't stain teeth....my customer is quite specific in ALL aspects of the cake , lol
Wow, picky customer, I have used Americolour in all different colours and strengths including the electric colours and the only thing that was stained were my hands and it was relatively easy to get that off.
Hehehe, I know, right! Their wish is my command ;)
