Q: Where did you get that great pattern for the background of some of the images?
A: All of the backgrounds are scrapbooking paper. The papers make GREAT backgrounds for food photos and you can find them at any hobby store, or even stores like Target.
Q: Where do you get your bright food coloring?
A: I am a big fan of AmeriColor Neon Food Coloring – which you can purchase at CountryKitchen. I have also seen Neon coloring in grocery stores, but I haven’t tried it yet. I also love Wilton’s gel food colorings, which give incredibly rich colors and the gel will not influence the consistency of your frosting.
Q: How do you get your red or black frosting to be so rich… and not pink or gray?
Isn’t it a pain to try to achieve true red or black?! It seems like no matter now much red dye you add, it just looks pink. There is a solution to this problem — AmeriColor Super Red and AmeriColor Super Black! You can find these colors at your local Hobby Lobby store — or do a Google search and you’ll find countless online vendors that sell it. It is well worth the money spent, believe me!
Q: Where do you buy candy eyeballs?
I LOVE the fact that this is something we can purchase — so much easier than trying to make eyes out of frosting. I usually buy mine locally at a baking shop in Madison called Vanilla Bean. But the Internet can also come to the rescue. You can find candy eyes at the following retailers: Confectionery House, the Baker’s Kitchen, and Copper Gifts.
Q: Can I use your photos on my own blog?
