Hi, In every area of my life I am very healthy and carefully watch what we eat.  However, not so much in my cake decorating and I am now looking at natural food colorings to buy or make myself. 

I would LOVE comments from people telling their experiences using products like India Tree and Chocolate Craft Kits natural colorings (or nat. powders).

I would also LOVE comments and recipes from people who make their own.

I am specifically looking for color quality and how well they worked to color BC frosting and fondant.

Thanks So Much! icon_biggrin.gif

ANatural food coloring is very expensive, they tend to work pretty well for pastels but not for deeper colors.
