How To Make A Robin's Egg Cake


2 minute read

Learn how to make a robin's egg cake this Easter with Courtney from Belly's Bake Shop! She will walk you through how to use Master Elites to create the most vibrant icing in the cake industry! These techniques specifically apply to Swiss Meringue Buttercream and American Buttercream!


COLORING ICING

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, just watch Courtney warm up a small bowl of her prepared buttercream to release that moisture and achieve an INTENSE shade instantly with Master Elite Turquoise Waters!

MAKING EDIBLE PAINT

Next, she will prepare her edible paint using The Color Solution and Elite Color, Turkish Black. Please note that while Elite Colors can tint ingredients, it is not their best use! They are intended to be applied topically to all confections: airbrushing, painting and dusting! For additional videos on Elite Colors, see these tutorials below!

But let's talk a little bit more about EDIBLE PAINT! The Color Solution is the answer to creating the most incredible 100% edible paint from any powder food colors and luster dust! It is an alcohol-based solvent that instantly creates an edible paint that blends beautifully on any confection surface including chocolate, royal icing cookies and buttercream! Check out the tutorial above to learn all about Elite Colors and The Color Solution.
