Colouring whipped cream?

Never done this before but I dont have much time so wondered if I could add a drop of food colouring to whipped cream to cover a pavalova. I just want a very soft pastel shade for a little girls birthday! Thanks.

For sure you can

Gel colouring (such as Queen - from supermarket - or Wilton) is best as it doesn't "water down" the cream as much.

Mix a little cream with the colour to "loosen" it up a bit, then fold into the rest of the cream.

Rangiora Bakery has a great selection of gel colours which would do this.

Any food colouring can be used. If you want a pale pastel, mix some colouring with a little cream, and add small amounts of the mixture to your whipped cream, until you get the right colour.

I colour whipped cream all the time. just use the cheapie hansells liquid ones. pour a drizzle in the cream before you start whipping.
