Need a quick decoration for your Easter cupcakes or carrot cake? Look no further – this is a super quick and super easy garnish. Melt white chocolate chips in a double boiler. Once melted, separate into two bowls and stir in food coloring. I used liquid food coloring and it worked fine, but Wilton’s icing color is better because it is concentrated. The potential problem with adding the liquid to the chocolate is that the chocolate can begin to seize. Mine worked with the green, but the orange began to seize because of the extra drops required. Adding a solid shortening helps the chocolate to remain smooth. I chose to use coconut oil because it is healthier! It is awesome stuff!
Once your colors are ready, load up your pastry bags and have some fun. I used a small round tip for the orange and a small leaf tip for the green! Let them harden and add them to your fabulous dessert!
