Or what comes after...lol...I'm going to try this recipe but I don't think I'm going to add that much color. Surely it doesn't take that much to give a good color. Maybe...but 2 ounces is a lot of food color.

I started making cakes in the late 70's, early 80's, when blue was "THE" wedding color (baby blue, powder blue ... not even a pretty blue!)

Anyway, having blue cake was kinda popular and I heard/learned early on that there isn't really any food that is naturally "blue". Even blueberries are not a pure "blue". And what I was told/learned is that people are leary of eating foods that don't look natural.

I began to observe that brides who wanted their cake batter dyed blue, tended to have more leftover cake than brides who had regular cake with just blue decor.

People are not keen on eating blue foods. For whatever reason, I've just observed it to be true.

Indydebi, you are so right about people not wanting blue food. My mother thought it would be a good idea to make ALL of the foods for one of her brunch parties blue. Blue onion dip, blue coffee cake, blue cream cheese for the bagels. She even made blue scrambled eggs, by just scrambling the whites and coloring them. There was a LOT of food left over.

When my son was 4, he insisted he wanted a "Yellow" theme for his birthday. You know, yellow food and beverages works a lot better than blue? That's when I realized that many of the child-friendly foods and flavors are yellow.

At one place I worked, we planned a St. Patrick's day pitch in and we required all green foods. I used spinach noodles and made green beef-n-noodles! You wouldn't believe how pretty a veggie tray is with cucumbers, green peppers, green onions, olives, celery and Green Goddess salad dressing as the dip! Gorgeous!

That does sound gorgeous, but that is probably because those foods are supposed to be green.

Now, if the beef was green, too, it would have been a bit much. (I have friends who insist that the burgers that thy were told to put in a fast food chain's chili were green, but that is another story.)

Yeah, I am not keen on eating any food that is neon or dyed, especially cake. I think I had red velvet once, but the fact that all that color is dumped in the batter grosses me out. I remember when I was a kid, I had some kind of wacky vanilla ice cream, which was dyed royal blue and green and stuff, and let's just say, the next day I got a little freaked out. icon_smile.gif

That was it for me on foods dyed unnatural and crazy colors!

I don't mind eating dyed foods, but my Mom freaks out!
She don't like anything blue- it reminds her of mold and anti-freeze...
she won't even eat blue jell-o... BUT any other color is fine...lol icon_wink.gif
