Instructions

Make the Edible Food Paint:

  1. Mix the ingredients in a small stain-resistant bowl, adding more coloring or vodka as needed until color reaches desired concentration.

Make the Edible Gold Paint:

  1. Mix the ingredients in a small stain-resistant bowl, adding more luster or vodka as needed. ‘Paint’ should be pretty concentrated and will have to be constantly stirred, as it will separate. The best ‘technique’ is to dab the brush where the liquid meets the bowl and press the brush against the side to remove excess liquid.

Notes

Don’t worry about painting with alcohol on cake or desserts for children. The alcohol will evaporate as the paint dries and will be gone by the time they are eaten! The same goes for the taste. Edible food paint should be tasteless.
