I successfully accomplished the cake for my husband's 30th birthday (after throwing away 6 cakes ). It was colorful (green, blue, red and purple) and although the icing didn't come out the green I expected it to, everyone loved it. It was delicious and pretty to look at.
Now I believe I've eaten too much cake over the cake. I was tasting this and that. We had leftoevers so I ate some of that. My hub did too.
Yesterday we noticed our poop was green, like the dye!!! And then blue too! I know TMI but wth? I could actually see the dye in the toilet. TMI I know, I know but it freaked me out. I am hoping it's because I had cake/dye overload over the weekend and that not everybody from the party is scared that they're pooping bright green. I asked my teenage cousin and after she said eww gross and laughed at me, she said no, she was pooping normal colors.
Eeew Gross! I'm sure it came from the dye. But I have to ask, what brand did you use?
haha! Your post made me laugh. Ever since my son was born two years ago discussions of poop and it's color are nothing unusual around our house!
I do think that is kinda normal, though. I've heard several people over the years talk about the "after effects" of eating a lot of deep colored icing at birthday parties.
I used Wilton gels in the 1oz jars. This is too weird and could be embarrassing if everyone after a party had colored poop!!!
Hopefully it's just because I kept tasting it but still, I don't think I like that after effect.
Lol, its obviously from the color dyes. I wouldn't worry about your guests, you didn't poison them. Lol
