GUIDE TO COLORING ROYAL ICING
Royal icing is possibly the easiest sugar medium to color with Master Elites, since it is filled with moisture (water). However, you can kickstart your coloring process by activating your Master Elite with just a FEW drops of water! You can follow this step placing the powder right on top of your royal icing or in a separate small container, either way - be sure you add a few drops of water and mix the powder gently to get all of the color crystals dissolved - as you see Ed do in this demonstration!
What this accomplishes is two things:
- It breaks down those color crystals, minimizing streaking later!
- It activates this incredibly powerful food color right away, so you will not over-color your icing!
Another thing to remember when coloring royal icing whether it is with Master Elites or gel food colors, STOP 1-2 shades ahead of your actual tone. Especially with Master Elites! As the icing dries, the color will only intensify!
