Fat-soluble dyes/pollen

Fat-soluble dyes/pollen

Working with chocolate is a special kind of creativity. The most popular sweet product allows confectioners to create incredible products, and special food dyes help to give it various shades.
If you use low-quality or incorrect dyes, the chocolate can be irreversibly spoiled. Therefore, approach this question wisely.
Dyes based on cocoa butter are ideal for coloring chocolate or butter cream. The structure and smell do not change, and the color is uniform and bright. Water and fat have different densities, so they do not mix and water-based dyes are not suitable for such coloring.

How to use chocolate dyes?

Chocolate dyes cannot give the bright color of dark chocolate. But you can make a color drawing on it. To do this, melt the contents of a jar of paint in a microwave oven (you can put it in warm water). Shake the jar and apply a thin layer of the pattern on the inside of the mold. Then pour the melted chocolate. Food coloring for chocolate can also be applied directly to the surface of the product. If the chocolate did not melt well and formed a lump, the paint will make the desired liquid consistency.
As for dyeing fatty creams, an oil-based dye is an ideal option. Water-based paint will be very difficult to interfere with, and oil-based paint will color instantly.
A few tips for coloring with chocolate dye:
