Cooking tip

• For easier measurement, 1/4 teaspoon Food Color = 20 to 25 drops

• For easier mixing and pouring, divide plain batter evenly among 4 resealable plastic bags. Add extracts and food colors as directed. Knead bags until batters are evenly tinted. Cut a tip off corner of each bag. Squeeze tablespoonfuls of batter into cake pans.
