How To Make Navy Blue Icing For Cakes!


Learn how to make NAVY BLUE icing for cakes with Ed The Cake Guy! Ed will teach you all the tricks to activating your MASTER ELITE BLUEBERRY (best food color for navy blue icing!) and achieve the most gorgeous, deep blue icing for your cake! 

COLORING ICING

Master Elite Food Colors are INCREDIBLE for any type of buttercream, including this cream cheese icing he's working with, but you need to first ACTIVATE the color FIRST! 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. Here Ed is using 1 tbs of heavy cream for his Blueberry Master Elite Food Color (click here)

While the "melting method" has been taught before here on our page, Ed prefers activating Master Elites with a little bit of heavy cream instead! It's a little more simple.

ED'S CREAM CHEESE ICING RECIPE

INGREDIENTS

  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 8 oz butter
  • 8 oz powdered sugar
  • 1 tbs vanilla
