COLORING ICING

Products Used Are Linked At The End: Violet Master Elite!

Master Elite Food Colors are INCREDIBLE for any type of buttercream, but you need to first ACTIVATE the color! As you may have noticed, Master Elites are raw pigment food colors and the color you see in the jar is not ultimately the color you will get when using inside of your confection! They must be activated by moisture. The Master Elite will bloom instantly when in contact with moisture!

Courtney mentions the "melting method" in this video, which you can find the FULL TUTORIAL at the link below! What you will do is take a small amount of your master batch of buttercream, then warm it for about 10 seconds in the microwave. Once the buttercream has melted, add about 1/16th of a tsp of Master Elite Color - in this demonstration, Courtney used Master Elite Violet (click here)

Mix the powder color until fully dissolved, then add it back to your master batch of buttercream. Watch the full demonstration on this at the link below:

COLORING FRENCH MACARONS

Products Used Are Linked At The End: Hot Pink Master Elite and Sunshine Master Elite!

Adding macarons to your letter cake is the PERFECT topper! Master Elites are PERFECT for coloring your French macarons! Since they are DRY food coloring, adding the powder colors to your macaron batter will not affect the integrity of your macaron batter ... in fact, Master Elites achieve the MOST vibrant colors for French OR Italian Macarons! Full tutorials on coloring macarons linked below!

COLORING CHOCOLATE

Products Used Are Linked At The End: Hot Pink Elite and Periwinkle Elite!

Our Elite Colors (not Master Elites) are fat soluble and perfect for coloring chocolate! Since Elite Colors are activated colors, what you see is what you'll get. So you will need to add MORE Elite Colors to tint any ingredients, including chocolate. 

We only recommend using Elites for coloring chocolate, since they are fat soluble! Master Elites are best for coloring LITERALLY everything else! But Elite Colors are more versatile than Master Elites, as you can also use them to dry dust, paint and even airbrush! Linking some important TUTORIALS for you below to understand how to use the Elite Collection!
