DIY | Colorful Cupcake Icing

Can you believe that every color swatch in the palette below can easily be made from a standard box of red, blue, green and yellow food coloring! Stefanie over at Anna and Blue Paperie shares this lovely icing find from The Food Network. The numbers below each color are the amount of food coloring drops you need to add to plain white icing. Such great color combinations!

    All those sweet colors make me think of spring! And yes, I was alarmed about the 100+ drops…thanks for the reassurance. :-)
