Vegetable based icing colors and cookie/cake decorations!
Holey sweetness batman! Anyone who knows me knows that I love, love to bake and decorate cakes. I have tried over the years to use the all natural colorants found at some of the health food stores with disasterous results (think spiderman cake in a lovely pink shade rather than red). And I admit that I gave up, going back to the commercial Wilton colors and regular colored sugar sprinkles. But, the Age of Autism posted this link and I have to tell you, I am SO buying this stuff! Some of the items I have looked at do have soy which can be a concern for some, so read the ingredients. But, no LAKE colorants with aluminum, no high fructose corn syrup, hooray! Yes, it is sugar but we all need a cupcake once in a while and why should our kids have to do without the sprinkles and decorations that make them so much fun? So, for others out there wanting another option, check out their website.
