I've taken to making cupcakes and cookies and making icing letters on them... you know, an "H" on one cookie, "A" on another, and so forth, and arrange the cookies or cupcakes to spell out HAPPY BIRTHDAY or whatever the occasion might be. I prefer bold, rich colors, like jewel tone colors, so these gel colors fit the bill to get the bold color without watering down my icing. Only takes a few toothpicks of color to get what I'm looking for, so each 1/2 ounce color is going to go a long way. A good buy, all around. I will never go back to regular liquid food coloring!

Also, I know others have stated this but I'll say it again, the black color is good but you have to start with a chocolate icing, not a white icing.

**Update** I found another use for these Wilton colors by making colored sugar. I've used it with granulated sugar and with sparkling sugar (bigger crystals) and it works great either way, but the sparkling sugar is more, well, "sparkly" which I like since I use the colored sugar to decorate cakes and cookies with. Put the sugar into a Ziploc bag, take the tip of a butter knife to get some color on it, then wipe the color off the knife on the inside of the bag. (Does that make sense?) Zip up the bag, then mash the sugar around with the color until evenly distributed. The color will come off the side of the plastic bag just fine and blend in with the sugar. Then spread the sugar out on a plate or a sheet of foil to dry for a few hours. Voila!

As an experienced baker for decades, I have used gel, paste, liquid, and powder artificial colorings. For the best control, I prefer the gels and powders. Whether doing royal, butter cream, color flow, fondant, or marzipan, the gel gives me an immediate, true color. I have been a Wilton customer for 30 years and will not use another brand.

Tips: When opening each little jar, DO NOT fully remove the foil cover over the product. Insert a wooden tooth pick to open a small hole. Unless you are making a large quantity of icing, you won't need to widen it and remove more than what is on your toothpick each time you pull out some color on it.

Store the jars with the lids secured and in an upright position.

I found another use for these colors recently. I used wood putty to repair a decorative shelf made of fiberglass. Using two shades of Wilton colors, I was able to re-produce the colors I needed. Anything that needs color and is sealed with a protective coating and does not get much wear will probably be just fine.

the Gel colors are great to use. Blends well with fondant, cake mix and icing. Will not water down your mixture as the liquid food coloring might. I use this for all my food coloring needs. And the price cant be beat!
This is a must have in everyone's kitchen.

This is so much better than food coloring. It only takes a very small amount to ad color to icing, cake batter, and cookie dough. Some colors (especially red and black)when you are trying to get the deep rich color may leave a little after taste. Try adding some alcohol based extracts (alcohol based extracts will not thin your icing like some artificial products will). When trying to get the true black color, try starting with chocolate icing then ad the black color. It requires less coloring thus less after taste. These are the only 2 colors that I had a problem with after taste. This product is great and I will continue to reorder this product.

These provide nice colors without having to use a whole lot. No noticeable taste from the colors and they didn't change the consistency of the frosting.

I used these when decorating a cake for my friend and it turned out quite nice, pic to be posted soon.

I have a 12-pack of Wilton colors, but I don't see that on Amazon, so I'm reviewing for the 8-pack.

Since 0 isn't an option (and it should be), I'm rating this a 1. But it doesn't even deserve that.

I just made a wedding cake for my best friend using the black and purple Wilton colors. I needed just a touch of the black to make gray buttercream, and just a little purple for both my fondant and buttercream. Both colors looked great when I applied them to the cake, but within minutes of being exposed to sunlight (even indirect sunlight), THEY CHANGED COLORS COMPLETELY! My purple turned BLUE and my gray turned GREEN. This is not acceptable. I had no idea this change in color would occur and NO WHERE on the package does it say that colors may change with exposure to sunlight. Even if I had kept it out of sunlight completely while I made it and stored it in complete darkness, it would eventually be exposed to sunlight when I went to transport it. It changed within minutes of being exposed to the sun.

My friend's wedding is today and I have to somehow tell her that the colors we originally had are now blue and green instead of purple and gray... Not only did the buttercream change color, so did the fondant, and it is INCREDIBLY noticeable.

I'm so incredibly disappointed, and I seriously doubt the ability of Wilton to produce high-quality cake products. Believe me, I'll never use any of their products ever again.

Thanks for ruining my friend's wedding cake, Wilton.
