Decorating Paste? SO not the same thing as food coloring.
I found this out after hand mixing the red paste (it's actually liquid) into a ball of sugar cookie dough in order to make our traditional Candy Cane Cookies.These are my hands after 12 scrubbings with Dial soap, dishwashing liquid and some orange goop I found in husband's workshop. I only succeeded in making them very, very dry. But the pretty I just killed a chicken with my bare hands effect has not faded.
