Hi,
on this one I used icing color and almond extract.. very little extract, maybe 3 drops, then used a watercolor brush..

I use airbrush food colors, which are very similar to an artist's watercolors.

Good luck and let us know how it went!

I use wilton paste colors mixed with vodka (cheaper than almond extract or lemon extract). You can use a mini muffin tin for a palette.

You can also mix the gel colors with a little bit of white for opaqueness...or luster dust for sparkle.

I have used Rum and gel colors and lemon abstract and gel colors. They both worked quite nice.
