Food coloring: I use AmeriColor Gel Paste food coloring for ALL of my food coloring needs (that sounds funny).
I have a shelf full of, let me count....thirty-one bottles of color. Hey, just like Baskin-Robbins. Anyhoo....
These SEVEN are the ones I cannot live without:
I have large bottles of Bright White, Super Red and Super Black....
In the smaller bottles, Deep Pink, Chocolate Brown, Egg Yellow and Leaf Green....
So, if you are just starting decorating cookies, those 7 are the colors I would start with.
***update: In the comments, Megan pointed out that I don't have a blue listed. Although I don't use blue all that often, you definitely need one in your arsenal. I use Sky Blue. Thanks, Megan!***
Where to buy AmeriColor Gel Paste Food Coloring? Lots of places.
