Powder colour is a little more expensive than a gel or paste colour. A little trick that I have learned is to use your gel or paste colour and get your icing a little pink or grey (or whatever colour you're mixing) first. Then add a little bit of your powder colour. You will still get a nice dark colour without the taste. This also makes your powder colour last longer because you do not have to use as much of it!
Here is where the powdered food color comes in. To make colors that you are having a hard time getting like dark colors and such I use a combination of paste food color and powdered food color. This cuts back on the amount of each that you need to use. Keep in mind though, that I only do this for the buttercream icing.
The powdered food color does not have a taste to it either. So, adding a larger amount of it will not change the flavor of your icing. This is another great thing about the powder.
Powder colour is the best type of colour to use for dark or hard to get colours. Once again, colours like red, black, or dark blue. The gel or paste colors will give you a nice dark pink or dark grey for instance. The powder colour gives you a perfect red or black or blue every time.
