Crystal Colors review

Crystal colors

I have been so lucky to try out a new product on the market. Its called Crystal colors and they are fantastic to work with. Not only do they come in a range of beautiful colors that is perfect for painting and dusting your cakes and gumpaste flowers but you can also color your fondant, icing and even white chocolate with these wonder powders. Only remember not to use a white workboard when you use the powders as it can be hard to get rid of stains afterwards ;-)

FACTS ABOUT CRYSTAL COLORS:
CRYSTAL COLORS ARE MADE FROM 100% CERTIFIED FOOD COLOR.
ALL COLORS ARE FDA AND EU FOOD APPROVED.
ALL COLORS ARE MADE AND BOTTLED IN THE U.S.A.
CRYSTAL COLORS CONTAIN NO FILLERS THAT WOULD DESTROY THE INTEGRITY OF THE COLORS.
COLORS ARE USED FOR GUMPASTE FLOWERS, BUTTERCREAM FROSTING, FONDANT, WHITE CHOCOLATE AND OTHER APPLICATIONS (THERE’S NO BITTER TASTE AND THE COLORS WILL NOT BLEED).
PROPERLY SEALED AT ROOM TEMPERATURE, CRYSTAL COLORS WILL LAST INDEFINITELY.
THE COLORS ARE SO INTENSE THAT A LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY. (SOME CUSTOMERS HAVE GONE THROUGH 7 CONTAINERS OF COMPETITORS COLORS BEFORE GOING THROUGH 1 CONTAINER OF OUR COLOR)
THE COLORS ARE DOUBLE SEALED FOR YOUR PROTECTION.
THE COLORS COME IN EASY OPENING CONTAINERS.

I find the Crystal Colors very easy to work with and a little really goes a long way. I was surprised to see how quick it blended into the fondant (blue & green), even the royal icing (peach) and the white chocolate (blue) was so easy to color. A good tip is when you want to use it for royal icing or chocolate is to “grind” the powder between two teaspoons to get it super fine in texture and it will then mix in perfectly.

    Hi Louise ~ I am so glad you have this information about Crystal Colors!  I picked up 12 colors at a Cake Competition in my area back in February and haven’t used them yet.  I googled “Crystal Colors” and when I saw that “Cake Journal” came up, I was extremely excited!  The question I had was answered below and will make my life easier when using with vodka.  I am working on a Mardi Gras Sweet 16 cake and need the intense colors that this will provide me.  As always, I look forward to your next posting.  Thank you ~ Diana

      Diana: You will love working with the CC. I also use them for coloring deep colored fondant. Powder + gel paste colors = beautiful & intense colors :-)

    Can I use these colors with vodka/extracts to paint on dried royal icing? Is there luster or sparkles in it?
