Aunt Chick's Edible Paint

Edible Paint



  • 2 pounds powdered sugar (sifted)
  • Boiling water
  • Orange and Lemon Flavor oil about 2ml of each or 4ml of one.
  • About an 8th of a tsp of citric acid.


Tip: I use a syringe to add oils. They are very concentrated.

Put powdered sugar, oils, & citric acid in large bowl. Slowly add boiling water a tablespoon at a time. Mix with whisk. Mixture will be VERY THICK. Divide into separate containers before thinning down.

Tip: Add color before thinning Thin with boiling water. When you are ready to use, it should be the consistency of honey. (thanks to Susi Hildebrand for this recipe)
