Natural Food Dyes, Colorful Cakes
When passions all come together in one place it’s kind of pure bliss. That’s what is true for me with creating colorful, healthy cakes and making a cookbook where all the goodness can come together. Having said that… in my first cookbook, Cakes of Color I was a bit more focused on the perfect Gluten Free flour than the most concentrated color dyes I could get from nature.
I love the sensual journey of where color psychology, taste and smell come together in sharing a beautiful cake. If you love color in your baking adventures, read on…
So let’s look at some amazing sources for natural color dyes:
Color Kitchen Foods is a wonderful online source: I like the box of 5. I recommend you double the quantity for a full cake.

There are so many things you can dye when making a colorful cake. White chocolate with a lavender dye shredded on the frosting, beet juice concentrate in chocolate is a nice trick to add flavor interest and deepen the chocolate color to a deep reddish brown. Natural dyes are a huge delight in the kitchen.
