I have a question about the recipe "Paintbrush Cookies Redux" from calendargirl.
It seems you use liquid food coloring. I only have paste/gel at the moment and wonder if it will work? Dilute?
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
Louisa, I have used paste food coloring, and it does work, but I didn't have quite as much control. Try experimenting with an egg yolk (divide it in half): dilute with water, stir it up and then use a really tiny amount of your gel coloring. You will be surprised how little it takes. Let me know how it goes!
Thanks, will do.
I have a collection of vintage cookie cutters, so am really looking forward to making them this week.
gel is much more concentrated. I personally prefer it. And as mentioned above, due to it's intensity, you only need very little gel for smaller quantities of icing. By tiny, i mean you can take some out with a tooth pick. Go slowly. You can always ag=dd more.
