How do you get icing that striking orange for making the perfect pumpkin cake at Halloween or a carrot-coloured nose for your snowman cake at Christmas? Whatever the occasion, if it’s orange you’re looking for, this all-natural PME food colouring will help you recreate the tangiest shade of marmalade or recreate one of the brightest sunset hues.
Ideal for decorating autumnal bakes with fondant leaves, carrot cakes with mini carrot toppers, it’s also just the thing for creating celebration cakes featuring anything orange from foxes right through to tigers, goldfish, ginger cats, basket balls, marigolds, gerbera or your very own Nemo.
Give citrusy bakes a buttercream topping or filling to match their flavour, or take on a checkerboard challenge by using it to colour your cake mix in a recipe like our Orange and Vanilla Simnel Battenberg Cake – a delicious hybrid of those two classic cakes with extra orange, vanilla and ginger notes.
Simply add a little to icing, buttercream or sponge mixture before baking. And, as it’s highly concentrated, it’s easy to vary the intensity of your orange by adding just a few drops more or less without significantly diluting your mix.
With all-natural colouring and alcohol and gluten free.
About PME Food Colourings
Since securing contracts with the British Army in 1970 for supplying cake decorating supplies – yes soldiers eat cakes too! – PME (Precision Machining Engineers) have focussed their engineering expertise on producing high quality cake decoration equipment and these food colourings are no exception.
All-natural food colourings have a reputation for not being quite as bright as their synthetic counterparts but PME have worked their magic and these little bottles really will give you a range of truly vibrant colours, without resorting to E numbers for the colourants.
