    Mims & Squims's Note:

    Did you know that many FD&C (U.S.) approved food coloring dyes have been banned in other countries due to safety concerns? I think I'll dye my eggs the all-natural way, with things I know are safe

      This is a very useful list not only for Easter eggs but for icing. I used beetjuice to colour the icing for my daughter's birthday cake pink. It's very useful to have a list of potential colourants in one spot.
