Don’t you just love those rainbow sprinkles or coloured cakes? Sadly, most of them are loaded with artificial colours that I fear even touching them. However, I just discovered that there are foods that can be used for natural food colourings.

(Wouldn’t you want to eat this cake, knowing all the ingredients were natural?)
