Green coffee cake!?!?!

Green coffee cake

You bet! Your color is not off on your computer screen and I didn’t totally botch this photo. Seth’s into coloring his food these days and he wanted to make coffee cake with his papa. I don’t know why, but he requested to color the batter green. Maybe it had something to do with the color mixing experiments we’ve been doing lately. Maybe he just saw the food coloring and a light bulb went off. Who knows?

After his father had him put me on the spot for granting permission, they set to work with just a few drops of food coloring. They showed remarkable restraint and created a lovely light tinged batter. It wasn’t anywhere near as bad as I thought it was going to be. There were no ill effects to the final product and Seth just beamed with pride. Could this be our St Patrick’s Day breakfast? What will be next? Muffins? Loaves of bread?

Do you ever use food coloring on food other than frosting? If so, leave a comment on what you like to color.
