    I have tried several natural food colors over the years. This is my favorite! Pros: Resealable package, powder formula won’t dilute frosting, nice colors, more affordable than other options, doesn’t taste funny. Cons: I could do without the dextrose and glucose solids, but fine for what it is. (It is going in a ton of sugar after all.) The colors are less vibrant than artificial colors which is to be expected. My son has a sensitivity to artificial colors so we avoid them as a family. All of my children were thrilled with the way this frosting came out. Here’s a picture of my attempt at rainbow/unicorn cupcakes using the three colors. (India tree are the sprinkles.) I haven’t tried mixing for secondary colors yet. I plan on repurchasing.

    AWESOME!! Colors were vibrant and didn’t affect the taste. I will never go back to artificial food color. One note- this is a powder and even a small amount will dry out frosting so I would suggest adding more milk or whatever liquid you use in your frosting recipe, I didn’t expect this so I had a little trouble frosting and piping. Next time I will anticipate this texture adjustment.

    YAY! This coloring is amazing. My son can’t have artificial dyes so we have tried many natural color options over the years. THIS is our favorite by far. The powder colors blend in great and on first try we mixed green just as the box instructed and it turned out great!! With other brands the colors were very light with recommended amount and we would have to use a lot. We had perfect green icing the first try and my son was thrilled! I have already order another box because we have not seen this locally and I want to be sure we have more. I will post the buttercream icing recipe we use below. It has worked amazing with this coloring and the icing is the correct amount to follow the mixing guide on the box.**Buttercream Icing**1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract2 cups confectioners’ sugar, sifted2 tablespoons milkMcCormick Natural Food Color1) Cream room temperature butter with a hand mixer, the paddle attachment of a stand mixer, or a wooden spoon until smooth and fluffy.2) Gradually beat in confectioners’ sugar until fully incorporated.3) Beat in vanilla extract.4) Pour in milk and beat for an additional 3-4 minutes.5) Add food color, if using, and beat for thirty seconds until smooth.

    My oldest has bad reactions (mental outbursts and physical tics) to food coloring. We have been eliminating all coloring from his diet and it’s helped greatly. He wanted to still make fun treats with colors, so I purchased this product to try. We made a white cake and divided it into 3 parts and tried all the colors, then baked together to make a fun rainbow-ish blend. We did not use the full packets, I wanted them to last. The colors still turned out, but they were more of a pastel of the red, blue and yellow. He still enjoyed it though. You probably will not be getting the brilliant brightness of artificial food coloring though, unless perhaps you used A LOT.I’m happy with the product though!

    I used these powdered dyes to make homemade play dough for the kids. Wanted inexpensive colors that did not contain artificial dyes and harmful chemicals, and these were perfect! A little goes a long way and they mix together great! Was able to get very vibrant colors using just 1/4 -1/2 tsp each. It comes with 3 colors and they even include the recipe and ratios to mix for other color options.

    I managed to get the light pink color I wanted. A little different using powder, not too difficult though. Just add a little at a time. I’ll use it again for sure, artificial dyes are really not good for health!

    I have a kiddo who is sensitive to food dyes (and even if she wasn’t, food dyes are terrible for you anyway). I finally decided to try this stuff, specifically for the yellow. (I have used beet juice in the past for a beautiful rose/mauve pink). This turned out AMAZING. I used both packets for a vivid yellow frosting. There was zero weird taste. It was DELICIOUS. Absolutely will be using this again.(Just want to mention that I used black cocoa powder in a buttercream frosting for the edges, and for the logo, I printed out that logo on paper, cut it out, laid the empty spot of the paper on the top of the frosted cake, and sifted on the loose black cocoa on until I was happy with the result. Then I removed the paper. Worked SO well- and I am an amateur baker!)

    I love that there is a way to color frosting that is natural (and I didn’t want to do it myself with beets and stuff). These powders mixed in well with homemade icing and the colors are very pretty- more of a pastel vs bright primary colors. It gives instructions for how to combine colors to create other colors (we all know blue and yellow make green, but this gives the proportions for combining the powders and it works pretty well). No more red dye #40 for me!
