Baby blue coloured ganache

Hi having difficulty making baby blue coloured ganache I am getting green any suggestions please and what colouring gel would you use for baby shower .Iā€™m using Lidl white choc which I have always used


Hi Alicain

White chocolate contains a lot of cocoa butter which, when coloured, turns out green. To help tame this, either use oil-based colours for chocolate as seen here:


or chocolate/food whitener here:


You could also use pre-coloured candy melts. I have used Merckens brand which seems to taste better than others.
