I have never used gel food coloring.I usually use paste food coloring (never liquid) because it’s more vivid and lasts FOREVER. You can get it at Michaels using a coupon.
- Liquid gel gives a deep, rich color without thinning and blends well. It is available online and in specialty stores.
- Liquid is the most familiar form of food coloring. It gives the weakest color compared to other types of food coloring and, because of its liquid consistency, it will thin out whatever it is being mixed with.
- Gel-paste gives deeper, more vivid colors than gel or liquid. It is very concentrated and should be used in very small quantities.
Powdered Food Coloring
- Powdered food coloring is very concentrated. It can be combined with sugar to decorate cookies, and with lemon extract to paint onto iced cookies (just roll cookies in it to color them).
