Powder Dye Yellow 1g Oil based powder dyes are used to colour white chocolate. Simply add a few shakes of powder to your melted white chocolate and mix. Keep adding more powder until you get the desired colour. The powder has no taste. You can also use these powders to colour icings including: Ready to Roll Fondant icing, butter frostings, modelling paste, flower paste. You can make a liquid paste but adding a drop or two of boiling water to some powder colour or mixing the powder dye straight in and kneading the colour through.
