This crystal color is a U.S. certified food color. It can be used to color chocolate or candy coating, icings, fondant, gum paste and more. This color does not fade or bleed, and does not stain hands when kneading fondant. This color can also be used like a petal dust.
Use for buttercream icings (if using real butter, please use unsalted and no color additives as butter contains FDC yellow 6):
