Gel Food Colors have literally changed my life in the kitchen
Gel food colors are so much easier to use, not messy and don’t stain everything you touch. They are actually new to me. I loved using them. I am in Long Island visiting my kids and when I asked my daughter-in-law to pick up food coloring, I wasn’t familiar with the gel type. Of course, I wanted to bake some treats with the grand kids. We always bake together and the girls want everything to have a rainbow. So, when Sana, my daughter-in-law brought home this new type of food coloring, I initially thought she bought the wrong thing.
No Mess with Gel Food Colors
I usually hate messing with food colors. They seem to get on everything and before I know it my hands are green and blue. That is OK but what I hate is it is do difficult to get the food coloring off your hands, the table, or the kids. Food colors seems to stain whatever they get on. Well, the gel food coloring worked with more vibrant coloring and best of all, it washed away without all the scrubbing and effort. Clean up was so simple!
From Cupckaes to a Heart Cake we used the food colors
Let’s Kids Have Fun with the Gel Food Colors
As you can see from our rainbow heart cake above, what a fun project with great taste. We colored the rainbow effect and of course, added sprinkles. Because the colors mixed together, don’t let the heart cake be the judge of their vibrancy. However, judge how much fun the girls had making the cake with me. There’s times for perfection and there’s times for fun!
I can’t wait to try the Neon food coloring I don’t know if they have it at all groceries so that’s why I have included the links to both. I promise you will never go back to the old messy food colors after you use the gel food colors. Whether you get the Neon or Classic, Betty Crocker brand gel food colors is the best I have used.
