Top 3 Food Colour Brands in Australia
When it comes to food colouring, we often settle for the ordinary, generic options available at the local grocery store, partly because it's easily accessible and partly cause we simply don't know the difference between all the options out there.
Being that food colours have super important part to play in cake decorating we should really pay more attention to them and choose the ones that are best for the job in hand. Let's make sure we're equipped with the right food colours to create cake masterpieces that will leave everyone in awe!
Here are our top 3 picks of food colours and the best part is they are all Australia made and owned:
1. Colour Mill
If you're someone who loves experimenting with food colours and enjoys pushing the boundaries of your creativity in the kitchen, then Colour Mill is your new best friend!
2. Sweet Sticks
Sweet Sticks is another power house food colour company in Australia. Same as Colour Mill, Sweet Sticks started out with one line of food colour which has grown now to tons of different lines.
The main difference between the two? Sweet Sticks in concentrating on all kinds of different paints that can be used to paint your edible creations. Sweet Sticks products can't be used same as standard food colours and have to be painted on surfaces only.
The original Sweet Sticks food paints came in metallic and original shades. The new lines have food colour powders, both in standard and lustre range as well as water activated edible paints
Using Sweet Sticks Edible Art Paints is a breeze, even for beginners. Simply open the jar, grab your paintbrush, and let your imagination run wild. Dip your brush into the paint, and with each stroke, watch as your desserts come to life with vibrant hues and artistic designs.

Sprinks food colours are relatively new addition to the ever growing food colour business. Sprinks colours are super concentrated gel colours and the range has over 40 different colour options available.
Sprinks food colours come in cute little glass jars equiped with handy droppers making food colour dosage super easy.
Sprinks food colours can be used with water based products as well as some of the oil based products. They are not recommended to use with chocolate though as any water added to the chocolate will make it seize and will ruin your creations.
Adding Paint Base to your Sprinks food colours will turn them into edible paints similar to Sweet Sticks products. Adding Oil Base to Sprinks food colours will turn them to oil based food colours similar to Colour Mill products. How great is that??!!
