Honey Bear Baby Color Palette and Icing Color Formulas

I used Chefmaster brand food coloring for all of these formulas.  If you're not sure what the "parts" mean, or how to use these formulas, check out THIS POST for detailed step-by-step photos!  When I make very light or pale icing colors, I mix the food coloring into a very small amount of icing (2 tablespoons) first and then use that saturated icing to color the rest of my icing.

The bottle cutter is no longer available, but THIS ONE is a great substitute. The honey pot and beehive were hand cut.
