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.
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.
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!
not too much
I really liked this gel. I used abit too much which was a mistake but it gives a fantastic colour. Just remember less is more!
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!
