The Science behind Colour Mill;
Most colourings are water-based gels. Manufacturers mix water, thickeners and colour together to create their product.
Since 'The Age of Buttercream' we're finding that colourings are becoming less effective in our baking.
Let's take Swiss Meringue Buttercream for example. 40% of your SMBC recipe is Butter (oil) and you're adding gel colouring (water) to dye it? We all know that water and oil can't mix.. So why are we doing it? Your gel colour will dye the sugar in your buttercream but will it dye the butter? No. So you're adding your gel which can only dye 60% of product and wondering why the results aren't great.
Here's where Colour Mill steps in.The forumla is completely oil based, this allows the colouring to disperse through the sugar, eggs, and yep.. You guessed it.. Butter!
The colouring will dye every part of your Buttercream allowing you to achieve deep, dark and vibrant colours. It's simple really.
