“Kool” colors for icing

From your favorite cake-decorating fanatic (at least fanatic for being as crappy as I am with an icing-bag): here’s a great trick for your next batch of frosting. With enough pigment to dye hair, Koolaid powder works wonders with drab frosting colors. It doesn’t thin the icing either. At about 20 cents per packet, you can make your latest bake colorful AND flavorful.

One packet works well with about one prepared can of frosting, so if you’d like lots of colors from one can or batch, just use less koolaid.

Can you imagine a pink-lemonade birthday cake with raspberry roses and lime leaves? Or “conversation heart” valentine cookies that taste oh-so-much better than their Necco anscestors? Mmmm 🙂
