    my mom uses it to bake special cakes,<br><br>this is how it looks like:<br><br><img src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-js3gs8ENt3Q/TahzobJ4xbI/AAAAAAAADhw/gP8unMmobP4/s1600/food-coloring.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br>and you can make cakes like this with it:<br><br><img src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-eDo4R_UpCDM/Tdo1gBx1YhI/AAAAAAAAABs/XzemP6nzzMc/s1600/coloured+cake.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br>this cake is not made by my mom, its just an example. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_razz.gif" alt="Razz" longdesc="9"><br><br>Food coloring is a good alternative for paint, but since food coloring is water-based it wil turn pale when it is exposed to water, so put a layer of polish on it.<br><br><br>Kind Regards,<br><br>Stefan
