Dye-Free Gingerbread Cookie Decorations?
I just got an e-mail from my daughter’s teacher about some gingerbread cookie decorating fun at the holiday party this Friday! The parents planning the party already asked me about general food items to serve that my daughter can eat, which was very thoughtful. I’ve offered to donate lots of goodies…
But I don’t want my daughter to be left out of the cookie decorating activity – so I’m on a mission to find dye-free frosting and candies. I have some red and green tree-shaped gummies from Indie Candy, and some chocolate candy covered sunflower kernels and mini candy canes from Natural Candy Store. I can find some Sun Drops or Smarties at Whole Foods easy enough…but I need to make or buy some naturally-colored frosting to pipe onto the little ginger dudes. The Whole Foods bakery can give me samples of their bright liquid natural dyes, I’m sure…just gotta make the white frosting…recipes appreciated!
Do you have any favorite dye-free cookie decorations you can tell everyone about, pretty please? Homemade frosting recipes, candies or other food items your kids like to decorate with… I know there are many of us who would be grateful for the ideas!
Later this week I will post a video about general holiday treat replacements, and I hope to report back on how our class party went. Send me your ideas at admin[at]diefooddye[dot]com, or in a comment below.
