Hi everybody,i have a question about tempering chocolate,can we temper chocolate in kitchen mixer using a paddle?on low speed,another question :i dont have alcohol based colors for airbrush available in my region,how can i make this kind of color on my own?
Thanks alot for the answer,well i compared this tempering in a mixer method with marbling method,cuz on the marble we cool the chocolate as we are moving it,the same happens in mixer just like kitchen aid has this machine the difference is it can heat the bowl in the mixer... Powdered colors are available in my city but i dont know the amount i should mix with alcohol
Tempering is about controlling temperature not just mixing. You could add melted chocolate to the bowl of a stand mixer and add seed and then cool it down and mix it. When you got to the right temperature you'd have to take it out of the bowl and use it all immediately as there's no way to maintain temperature. It might be possible to add some sort of heater and thermocouple to control temps but it might not be all that much cheaper than buying a tempering machine of the same capacity.
To make your own colors for airbrush decoration, you'd need to find a source for food-grade powdered colors. I don't know where you are so I can't advise on possible sources for these. They might require importing.
