Coloring SMBC ?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

So I am jumping on the SMBC bandwagon and will be decorating my first cake with it. I made a trial batch yesterday and loved it! I need to tint it a deep red; how will I achieve this? Americolor? Can I use melted red candy melt? Thanks for your help!

deep colors might not do good with smbc

 

test it a bit and see how you do--let it sit out for a few hours too

 

i'm thinking powdered color might work? americolor gels might do good

 

i airbrush mine and get good/decent results

 

but you gotta play with this

my cookies are prettier than your cookies because this is the second time i substituted my opalescent sanding sugar when i ran out of sugar to make the batch ha!

Powdered colors would be okay, oil-based candy colors would work better. It won't get super dark, though. You could let is sit overnight, the color might get slightly darker. If you put too much water-based color into meringue buttercreams it starts leaking out of it like it's sweating little colored droplets. it's weird.

 

I would start with the powdered food color, then let it sit, then add the candy coloring, then let that sit. Adding candy melts to it won't work at all, as far as I know.
