As I’ve worked on cakes and cookies over the years, I’ve had many instances where painting on cookies or pieces of fondant makes so much more sense than making 6 bags of different colored icings, or piping tiny details.
I quickly got sick of attempting to paint directly with food dye, which can easily end up way too dark, and is difficult to control. So I experimented over the years and developed this simple recipe that works much more like an actual paint!
