I have an order for my first organic cake. Its going to be buttercream so I don't have to try to find ingredients to make organic fondant or gumpaste - thankfully. But, I will probably be adding color (lavender) to it and am wondering if you all have ever used the organic dyes and if so which kind, what color(s) and what you thought about it. Thanks for any information.

I just ordered some natural food dyes, but they haven't come yet. I'm so excited to try them an would love to hear from anyone who has used them!

I use natural food dyes (esp. for Passover) and I think the main thing to keep in mind is that they are very liquidy. When I use them for RI, I can't add as much water or it is too runny. It is also hard to get strong colors, but for a lavender you should be fine. May I ask where you ordered your from? And good luck!

Saberger, I haven't ordered any yet as I have a little time before the cake is due. I would love to learn where you found natural ones.

Bonniebakes, let me know when you have yours, what you think and where you got them.

I ordered mine from Foose (the cookie cutter site)
