I had used up all my cake decorator yellow colouring and was forced to resort to Queens Yellow which I thought would be fine. Alas not. Look, it was fine in the grand scheme of things, but as I was going for a butter yellow and it turned into a bright yellow I was disappointed.
How did this happen? Did I add too much? Well no, I carefully added the colour and was happy with the result. Then iced the cakes and two hours later I came home and they had changed! They were a much brighter yellow.
So that is a lesson learnt. Take care with inferior yellow colouring!
These are now known as Digella Ruffle Cupcakes. I am loving them.
