Product Details

100ml BOOSTER professional oil-based concentrated icing colouring enhancer - from Colour Mill

  • this Booster acts as a colour enhancer when added to any conventional paste or gel colours
  • the special formula makes your normal paste or gel colouring much more suited for buttercream, ganache, Swiss meringue, chocolate, cake mix batters etc
  • this is a brilliant idea and a really cost-effective way of creating your oil-based colouring when you need it
  • Booster works by emulsifying so allows different types of ingredients to mix
  • it helps disperse your colour and dye more evenly through a fat-rich medium
  • it improves fluidity in chocolate in a similar way to adding cocoa butter
  • Colour Mill colours are described as 'next generation food colour'
  • the information below explains just how effective these specially formulated super-concentrated oil based icing colourings are - specifically designed for use with buttercream and other products that have a higher fat content
  • but what if you already have a range of traditional paste or gel icing colourings?
  • mix approx 2-3 Booster to 1 part paste or gel colouring
  • the Colour Mill range has been flown all the way from Australia, exclusively by Cake Stuff
  • conventional paste or gel colours are ideal for colouring sugarpaste icing but they do not really like fats or oils, so you often struggle to get proper colour consistency when using buttercream etc (see below*)
  • Colour Mill's unique blend actually loves the fats and oils in your baking and uses these oils to disperse the special formula colouring
  • create vibrant, consistent shades that will not fade - in fact the colours develop over time so use sparingly to begin with
  • RRP is $24.95 (Australian dollars) so by the time you add on shipping costs and import duty, around £20 Sterling
  • this larger 100ml bottle is really good value as 5 x standard 20ml bottles would cost around £25 (£29.95 RRP)
  • yes, they're relatively expensive but they are really specialised colourings and the results are pretty amazing
  • *here's a good explanation from Colour Mill's blog . . . since 'The Age of Buttercream' we're finding that colourings are becoming less effective in our baking. Let's take Swiss Meringue Buttercream for example... 40% of your SMBC recipe is butter (oil) and you're adding gel colouring (water) to dye it? We all know that water and oil can't mix, so your traditional gel colour will only be able to dye the sugar in your buttercream but not the butter itself.  That means you're adding gel/paste that can only dye 60% of the product, which is why the results are often not great
  • this is why Colour Mill is so good . . . the formula is completely oil based, which allows the colouring to disperse properly through the sugar, eggs and butter to dye every part of the buttercream to allow deep, dark and vibrant colours
  • Colour Mill colours go through a specialised milling process that grinds the powder into an ultra smooth liquid, leaving you with a grain free paste with no aftertaste
  • shake well before use and add a tiny drop at a time to build up shade - eg using end of a cocktail stick
  • very economical to use due to its high strength concentration
  • mix in a mixing tray and apply with a sugarcraft dusting brush or food-approved paint brush
  • approx 100ml nett - approx 120g nett (weight varies with colour)
  • 100% edible and 100% approved for use in the EU
  • plastic bottle - approx 12cm / 120mm / 4¾" high including lid x approx 4cm / 40mm / 1½" diameter
  • squeeze top dispenser lid - allows accurate dispensing
  • inner foil safety seal
  • BBE at least 12 months and normally much (years!) longer
  • ingredients: glycerol E422, emulsifier & stabiliser: lecithin E322
  • suitable for vegetarians & vegans
  • suitable for Kosher and Halal
  • free from all listed allergens but please note stored and handled in an environment where nuts and nut oils are present so we cannot guarantee 100% free of nut traces
  • Colour Mill can also be used for sugarpaste, royal icing, marzipanflower / modelling / gum pastescake mixes, pastry, frostings & fillingsisomaltpiping gelcake lace mixes, desserts, white chocolate, cocktails etc but there are many top brands of paste / gel colourings that we would always recommend as offering better value for everyday colouring, including Sugarflair, Fractal Colors, Rainbow Dust, Colour Splash, Wilton, PME, Squires Kitchen etc
  • store in a cool, dark place out of direct sunlight to preserve colour vibrancy
  • shade accuracy - please remember colours shown are representative only and will look different on different PC monitors and tablet / phone screens
  • although not necessarily present in this particular product, the colours used across the entire icing colouring range may include the colours E102, E104, E110, E122 & E129 - which may have an adverse effect on activity and attention in some children
