Beginner's Kit

We know powdered food coloring can be a bit confusing and overwhelming, especially as you first start! So we are here to resolve those concerns for you and have chosen the BEST (& easiest to use) from every collection we make! We hope you enjoy and read below for individual descriptions!



  • DiamonDust:White & Gold DiamonDust
  • Master Elites: Red Rose & Turquoise Waters
  • Sterling Pearls: Wedding Gold & Nu Silver
  • Elites: Amore and Turkish Black

DiamonDust: White Diamond is our MOST POPULAR PRODUCT! It is a beautiful, neutral 100% EDIBLE glitter! We also included Gold DiamonDust, as it is the second most popular & looks especially beautiful on chocolate pieces! To use simply sprinkle on by opening the shaker lid jar and lightly tap it! You will want to keep this product DRY as adding onto very moist confections (like freshly flooded cookies) can cause the dust to lose a bit of shine. Wait until the icing just crusts over to sprinkle on and check out the Color Education OVERVIEW for more tips!

Master Elites: Highly pigmented food coloring SOLELY intended to tint batches of ingredients, ie: royal icing, buttercream, fondant, batters, etc. To best use Master Elites, ensure the color comes into contact with moisture, so the color crystals can fully dissolve! We have MANY demonstrations on how best to use Master Elites - head to the Master Elite Page under Color Education and spend time reviewing the listed videos as well! (ie: SMBC + Master Elites).

Sterling Pearls: Traditionally known as "luster dust," Sterling Pearls can be dry dusted, painted or airbrushed! To paint or airbrush with these powders, simply mix them in a separate dish with high-proof alcohol until you have a painting consistency. For a more opaque finish, add more powder. To airbrush: mix the powder with high-proof alcohol, but keep it more of a liquid consistency. Use a dropper to transfer the mixture from the dish to the airbrush reservoir.

Elite Dusts: Elites are powdered food colors mainly intended to be used TOPICALLY: paint, dust or airbrush. The above directions with Sterling Pearls for painting and airbrushing Elites are the same. We chose Amore as it is THE MOST POPULAR pink for "cheeks" on cookies or any character you are wanting to add blush to! Turkish Black is a color that is INCREDIBLE for shading and adding dimension.  Click here for a video demonstration of Turkish Black shading!

It's all about the color for me!

I've only tried the Amore color so far in the beginner set. The color was vibrant I used it to color a few fondant toppers. Love it!

Smooth mixing

Awesome! I love the Turkish black. It takes very little to develop into a great rich black and helped with color bleeding
