* Distilled water is inexpensive and available by the gallon at grocers and pharmacies. We recommend it in lieu of tap water because it is free of minerals and chemicals that may affect the color and stability of vegetable colorants which are susceptible to changes in pH.
We recommend HOT water because it aids in dissolving the sugar, which in turn aids in dispersing colors evenly and in preventing color separation.
It is best to begin with a few drops at a time of any color and to stir well after each addition, remembering that each shade will deepen as it dries.
Because natural colors will vary depending on the icing recipe used, we have created a creamed frosting, a royal icing and a sugar glaze recipe intended to give you the best results.
You may also use these colors with your favorite buttercream frosting, but the colors, especially the blue, may be softer and not as vibrant as those created with the recipes we recommend.
- Stir together all the ingredients and use as a glaze for cookies or cakes.
- To glaze a cupcake, simply dip the top of the cake in the glaze. turn it upright, and let the glaze drip gracefully over the sides.

- Add INDIA TREE Natural Decorating Colors a few drops at a time, stirring well with the flexible spatula after each addition.
- When you have achieved the desired color, stir, stir, and stir again, scraping the bottom and sides of the container with the spatula, making certain that the color is distributed throughout the icing.
- To thin the icing, add more HOT distilled water,* a few drops at a time. After each addition of water, repeat the process in Step 3.
