How to Colour Icing

Learn how to colour your icing with Betty Crocker.

Who said icing had to be boring? If you’re planning a themed cake, or simply want to add a splash of colour to your bake, we can show you how to add colour to icing.

  • If you’re planning to use several colours, separate your icing into different bowls.
  • Add a couple drops of icing colour. With icing colour, the important thing to remember is that less is more. The colours are really concentrated, so it’s best to only put a tiny bit in to begin with.
  • Swirl with a knife or a toothpick to distribute the colour before mixing it in vigorously. Once it’s mixed, you can see if you want to add more drops in. Steady as she goes.

That’s it! Now all you have to do is decide on which colour to try first!
