adding colour to cocoa butter
Cake Central Top Picks
candy coloring is made for candy like chocolate--should be perfect--no water in it to seize the choco up
not quite sure what you mean though
i would mix the color into various bowls of the cocoa butter and do the painting
(I would pipe it--i'm not good with a brush)
i'm not sure if it will stay put to paint it onto cocoa butter that's already set up--it might
it would work if your warm cocoa butter is poured onto it
if you painted the inside of an empty chocolate mold then poured the cocoa butter in
i might have over thought that--but anyhow--
Hmmm, i am currently trying to make cake pops. And some deco that i am trying out uses cocoa butter as 'paint' to draw the details out.
So apparently i found cocoa butter, but i am not sure what kind of colouring can i mix with so it becomes coloured cocoa butter and not turn out bad.
I was wondering if wilton candy colouring can be mixed into the cocoa butter i melted and somehow make into paint to deco on my cake pop. i checked and the wilton candy colouring is oil based.
If this picture helps you get my point, it will be great!
you got it.
yes that's the right product to use.

Candy colouring is the right stuff to use. Either Wilton or LorAnn.
Alan Dunn also mentions in all his books, that he puts a saucer with cocoa butter onto a mug of boiling water to melt it. He then uses dusting powders for colour--the same ones that he also uses by the bucket to dust his gumpaste flowers.
So if you have petal dust sitting looking for a good use, the cocoa butter painting would be it.
