Soft pastels and rich jewel tones seemingly found only in nature can now be used in icings and frosting. Only a small amount of these concentrated liquid vegetable colorants added to a bowl of icing or frosting goes a long way. Combine colors-red, yellow and blue-to create a full spectrum of options. Set includes three .75 oz colors. Made in the USA.

Searching for food dye that does not have any corn derivative in it is really difficult. I found this and was willing to pay $30.00 for it!!!

1. The set is for 3 colors and you can mix to make all the pretty colors in the pictures, I am an artist and have not problems with mixing colors. It comes with Red, Yellow, blue

2. Problem 1: The blue was not blue at all - it was swampy muddy green. not teal, not blue-green, not anywhere close to Blue. I shook and shook the product until I was blue in the face and was still a swampy mud brown/green. Absolutely nothing I can do with this color. My daughter wanted a princess cake with pink and purple - I said no problem. Big Mistake - I simply CANNOT make purple from this color.

3. It takes a TON of coloring to shade the icing. I have 2 pounds of icing (standard for a small cake) - it took over 1/2 the red to make a light pink icing. So frustrating. Now, the red is almost gone and I cannot make purple. this stinks!

4. Oh yea, it cost $30 for this??

Save your money - make your own dye from food - I am about to go on an exploration to find the perfect way to make purple because my little girl just wants a pink and purple cake.

I found these food colors to perform very well! I have used these natural colors in many types of icing for cake decorating. Noone notices any difference, as long as I remember a few simple rules for their use. *** Begin with just a few drops, and stir thoroughly before deciding you need to add more. *** They color white pure shortenings, such as organic palm shortening or Crisco, brighter and clearer than icings containing much yellow butter. Royal and egg white icings are fine. Candies tint great. *** Do not expect to achieve harsh artificial colors such as hot pink or lime green! But contrary to popular use at cheap supermarket bakeries, those bold and brash colors should not be combined on a cake at any rate. *** There are such amazing subtle colors possible, experiment to find them all! *** The only limitations I have found MAY be in a pinkish-lavender or a light spring green. In these cases, if I MUST have the specific color, I use the India Tree colors, and add just a very small amount of traditional blue or green. (I have not yet tried tinting cake batter, so I do not know how the colors will 'cook'.)
No, these colors do not behave exactly like the conventional artificial food colors. BUT, if you are looking for an alternative to Red #40, Yellow #5, and Blue #5... your priorities will be health, safety, and a confidence that YOU CAN EAT A RED FROSTING ROSE!!!!

There are widely different reviews for this product and here's why: the effectiveness of the coloring GREATLY depends on the shelf life. I bought this product first last year (2014) and it was great, it iced about 3 cakes I believe and then I used the rest of the coloring to dye Easter eggs (which worked out pretty well actually). Yes as people stated, the blue is not the best hue, you're not going to get a bright beautiful blue but the pay off is that you're not using artificial coloring derived from petroleum by-products. Then, I bought this item again May 23 for a June birthday cake, the item arrived with saying "best by 6/12/15". The coloring was so much less effective!!! I would guess the lot was the same as the one I bought the previous year, perhaps even older, or not stored at the proper temperature. I used all of the red and most of the blue to acquire a very pale purple. Very disappointing. I stored the item in the fridge when I first got it, both times, and would recommend that. I'll keep buying this again for cakes, and hope that I'll be getting a batch that's fresher, since there is no alternative for natural dyes without making them homemade.

These natural food dyes are great for keeping toxins out of my food, but their range of color is limited compared to that of conventional artificial food dyes. Not that there's anything wrong with a subdued color palette. Just be prepared for different shades than what you're used to. Well worth it! I'd rather have a Dark Pink Velvet Cake with no toxins than a Red Velvet Cake with toxins!

If you're looking for an exact replica of the harmful chemical dyes you can buy anywhere, you won't find it here. However, if you're looking for a great alternative with a few flaws, this is it!! These are not bright, primary colors, they are closer to jewel tone but they aren't pale. They're more gel, not liquid. They mix well as long as you use them in the first year, I'd say. I found some that got lost in the back of my cabinet and used it knowing it was closing in on two years. It was a bit harder to mix and get the color evenly distributed but I left icing in my kitchen aid and walked away for a few minutes and it was fine after a few scrapes of the side and another round.

I did try baking with it and I felt like it tasted like veggie chips (it was a dyed cake)! My dad gladly gobbled up the whole cake but I will not bake it again.

Several of my kids react to dyes, from hives to migraines and for years, there weren't "fun" alternatives for them. This allows me to make some of that stuff for them, without worries.
