i don't know why i never thought of this before....

i just mixed a couple drops of acrylic paint into the icing and mixed it up...

mixed up really nice, i was even able to make roses with it.

i'm sure someone has already thought f this...just thought i'd share........

Great tip! just to check, is the paint instead of the food colour, or as well as?

How long has the color lasted? Is it in any direct sunlight? If this works, you are a genius!! thumbs_up.gif

i just did them up today, but paint doesn't fade, so i'm guessing this wont. i used paint instead of gel color.

Can anyone tell me how this held up? I'm about to start a pink and black cake for my daughter to keep in my shop, and thought I would see if it really works!

I got this tip from another CC'er a few months back. I've been doing it to all of my display cakes as our entire storefront is windows. Its been 4 months and all the colors look brand new. We've used black, pink, green, blue and yellow.
