 Food Color Mixing Guidelines 

 Mixing basic food colors to create other unique colors 

For Icings and Baked Goods For Colored Eggs
Food Color
Blending Chart
Add food color gradually, a little at a time, to obtain desired shade.
  • Add 1 tbsp vinegar and 1/4 tsp of desired food color to 2 cups of boiling water.
  • Using a slotted spoon, place hard cooked eggs into coloring solution for 5 minutes or longer.
  • Remove eggs from coloring solution, and let dry. Once dry, color will not rub off.
  • For other colors, refer to chart below.
Colors ---------- ---------- ---------- ------ Parts of each color required* ------ ---------- ---------- -----------
Orange Sunset 5 Parts Yellow + 1 Part Red 17 Parts Yellow + 3 Parts Red
Raspberry 3 Parts Red + 1 Part Blue 14 Parts Red + 6 Parts Blue
Purple 6 Parts Red + 4 Parts Blue 5 Parts Red + 15 Parts Blue
