Shredded sweetened or unsweetened coconut can be tinted in a rainbow of colors. It is an easy way to decorate and adds a special decorative touch to cakes, cupcakes, cookies and other desserts.
This technique is used with the: Topiary Cake Pops Recipe Tutorial
HOW TO TIPS:
We recommend using gel food paste colors, as opposed to liquid ones.
1/2 cup shredded sweetened coconut
1-2 drops green gel paste food coloring
1. Put 1/2 cup shredded sweetened coconut to a bowl and add a drop of green gel paste food coloring.
2. Mix to distribute the color. If the color is not green enough, add a tiny bit more color and mix it in.
SARAH SAYS: You can use a spoon to mix, but your hands will do a more thorough job.
YES, your hands will turn green, but it washes off.
3. Let dry.
