While there are not many fat / oil soluble powders on the market, we did find another brand distributed by a few cake decorating suppliers which we decided to use!
Now onto the Chocolate Colouring Test…
We took about 200gms of White chocolate and melted it using a microwave for about 40 – 50 seconds. If you are wondering, the chocolate was bought from an Aldi store. Their quality of chocolate is excellent being imported from Germany the home of where great chocolate is from :-).
Using 6 x small bowls and 3 colours from the Chromacake Fat/Oil Powder Range and 3 colours from Oil based powders made by the other brand.
We mixed 1/4 of a tea spoon powder of each colour into the bowls.
Immediately once we added the 1/4 teaspoon of the green powder for both bowls, you can clearly see how intense the chromacake results were using the very same amount. The other brand mixed to a light – spearmint tone rather than a vivid green tone.
We then moved onto the yellow powder..
The results here were also very distinct with the Chromacake powder to the left looking very vivid while the other brand to the right looking more pale. The tones of both powders remained the same even after cooling in the fridge later on.
We then moved onto the most distinct of all, the Red powder…
Even we were quite proud of the Chromacake formula here. The Red as you can see on the left was extremely intense which can be a challenge in chocolate mixing. While the other brand left us with a pale pinkish / red colour to the right. Not sure if you can really call it red but that is what was indicated on the packaging!
Next we simply used a spoon and poured the chocolate mixes onto a tray with the other brand poured first followed by the Chromacake mix.
We then repeated the pouring onto the tray with the red as well…
Now of course you can make or mould what ever you like with the chocolate but we just wanted to keep it simple. Once we had them all poured onto the trays we placed them into the fridge to harden.
And then finally once out of the fridge the chocolates had hardened and the Chromacake chocolate were very impressive and retained their vividness and silky finish.
Again we reiterate that we did use exactly the same amount of powder for all the colours. We wanted to provide a non-bias review of the Chromacake fat / oil based powders. Of course the Chromacake powder range arrives in 12 colours (Including Black and White) however we were only using the colours we had available from the other brand.
