Simple Ideas That Are Borderline Crafty (38 Pics) S Royal Icing. DIY Cupcake Frosting Color Chart. The May issue of Food Network Magazine has one of the coolest features ever inside: a cupcake icing color chart!
The chart shows you how to make lovely pastel frosting shades in every color using a basic food coloring kit (red, yellow, blue, and green). The magazine also includes a recipe for white frosting to use as a base for the colors and a vanilla cupcake recipe. Want to make the colors pop even more? Make the frosting metallic using luster dust, a non-toxic edible powder. For those who missed out when the issue hit the newsstands, Food Network posted the frosting color recipes on their website.
