Natural food Coloring

Postby Quetzali77 on Wed Feb 12, 2014 6:38 pm

Hello,

Does anyone know of a store in Victoria that would carry natural food coloring such as the India Tree products? I called Sweet Art Supplies hoping that they carried it and they are out. I am trying to tint some frosting pink, any suggestions?

Thanks!

I've used some strawberry or raspberry jam.

Using fresh raspberries, heat, strain out the seeds and simmer the juice (reduce) to make it more concentrated in colour and mix into the frosting.

I've also used fresh strawberries. Chop them up/puree, simmer and reduce quite a bit. Add the puree to the frosting. If you puree them really well, there is minimal evidence of the berry seeds.

I go by the link above for our food coloring :) I was actually able to make our son's bday cake this year with no dairy (allergy), and no artificial colors!

I find strawberries make too pale of a pink. Cherries are good for pink.

You can also try any of the health stores like lifestyles market for natural food colourings.
