The cake looks and tastes great. Used for icing and cake colouring. They gave the colours i required both bright and subtle. Used shop bought liquids before which faded when the cake was baked and deep colouring couldn’t be achieved. These were more expensive but definitely worth it as you only need a small amount so they last a longer. I made a three tier rainbow cake with multicoloured icing and barely used a quarter of each of the colouring pots. The cake looks and tastes great.
These colours are really good. You only need a tiny amount to colour. These colours are really good. You only need a tiny amount to colour icing, cake mixture etc. If you need a stronger colour just add a little more. They are true colours and do not taint the icing like cheaper liquid colours do.

My son was delighted with his cake and it looked so impressive. I bought these to make a rainbow cake. A small blob taken with the wrong end of a teaspoon colours sponge a very vivid colour.

I’m very nervous of using e numbers, but this was the only product i could find that would make the impact for a rainbow party. It’s not quite true that you only need a tiny amount. To me, considering it is concentrated chemicals, it seemed like quite a lot (1/8th teaspoon per 250g butter cream icing, half of that again to colour 50g of white chocolate). It does develop as a bright, true colour, and would probably require less additive to white icing. On the whole i am satisfied with the result, but will definitely be using very sparingly and heeding the advice on the bottles regarding hypersensitivity among some children.

Items arrived in good time, well packaged and performed as expected. Purchased to make a rainbow cake, (had previously bought asda own natural food colours which did not bake well) but these colours were great, i just need to work on my icing and presentation skills.
Girls loved the colour in buttercreamnever baked a cake before but as you mix the colours, the vibrancy really comes out.
