More about this product
The review on the gel colours are totally those of All But The Cake, based solely on observations when mixing the gel colours with 15g of Fondant (Satin Ice brand). Some colours required a larger amount, and more mixing, while could have used less colour and blended extremely well. Each colour has its own comment, and we used a standard amount of colour was applied to same amount of fondant 15g, also using a toothpick as an applicator. This method stopped the fondant ball from being saturated with too much colour. Except of course I broke the this rule when it came to white. I was sure this was under control but I made a mess…. I just kept adding more to see if the colour would change, but this only made fondant sticky. More info on white, on the 30g White Gel page.
Ruby Red was a delightful colour to mix, of course expecting that this would go pink, but I was surprised at how quickly this blended into the fondant, with a couple of stretches and the mix was completed. I would recommend the use this for every Santa Claus (or Fire engine) I could find to paint, such a good red. I could have used less but I did like the final outcome. Just a word of warning, you may think the red will stain your hands, and decide to wear plastic gloves. Do not be tempted and this will stop the colour from mixing and you will end up with blotches of colour. (Look at the brown photo I used gloves) This gel easily washes off after using, but may be visible under your fingernails, in the case use lemon juice and a nail cleaner to remove the colour.
Results may differ on other mediums such as buttercream and sugar. Not Recommended for chocolate as water is an ingredient.

These gels come in a tube rather that a bottle, great is warm weather as every drop can be squeezed out, in cool weather warm the tube in your hands, so th flow of the gel is more fluid. If you think the tube is empty cut of the flat end to use the remaining colour. Waste not want not.
