Check out this awesome cupcake frosting color chart courtesy of Food Network Magazine! This might be handy as holiday baking season begins!
All you need is 1 cup of frosting and a standard box of food coloring (red, yellow, blue and green) to make endless color possibilities! Check out the instructions as to how many drops of each standard dye to make the color of choice! For store bought white frosting, uses the instructions in the parentheses. And don’t let the 100+ drops scare you! 100 drops is only 1 teaspoon! Also, do not add vanilla extract as that will alter the color!

Forget the cake part, the fun is in the frosting!!! Why aren’t cupcakes called frostcakes instead?!
