Have you ever needed a certain color sprinkle and can’t find it? (or in my case, too lazy to go to the store and buy it?) Well… here’s a how-to for you!
Make your own!
food coloring gel
[NOTES: I use coloring gel but you could use coloring liquid. I’d probably lay it out on a parchment-lined baking sheet for a couple hours to dry it out before using.]
Fill a ziplock back with sugar. (I used raw sugar for the bigger crystals but you can use granulated sugar too). Using a tooth pick, add some coloring gel to the sugar. Close the bag (make sure its really closed or you’ll get sugar all over the counter like I did!) and mix the sugar and coloring gel by shaking or massaging the sugar. Make sure to get out all the clumps. Add more sugar if you want the color to be lighter or more coloring gel for the color to be darker.
I have no idea why my sugar looks orange. Its actually red. *shrugs
Now the question is: What am I making red colored sugar for? Inquiring minds want to know.
