Much harder to use than normal liquid

Found this gel harder to work with and no way as potent as is implied by the name “extra strong”. Despite using a fair amount this produced a greyish / lavender colour in cake. Also difficult to mix in with cake batter as lumps of gel come out of tube and take a lot of effort to break down.

not strong enough

Whole tube for a large Victoria sponge mix gave a pale gray/lilac colour.

just ok

I used this in buttercream, however even after using the whole tube the icing was just a light violet colour. Not the dark purple I was hoping for. However I did buy the green and black and used them to colour sponge which was more affective. Perhaps this colouring isnt great for buttercream.

Great product

This gave a really good strength colour from only a tiny amount of product, so as well as being good quality it will last ages!

Superb gel

My wife enjoys baking and is always looking for ingredients which will give the best results; what a surprise! The cupcakes she baked were amazing. She used a few drops of the gel to achieve a fantastic colourful sponge. It’s perfect for adding to your sponge cakes!
