Natural vs Artificial
Updated: Aug 30, 2019
I'm sure most of us have tasted an unpleasant colored frosting. When bakers try to alter the hues of frosting with dark, bold or even very bright colored food coloring gels, it sometimes affects the taste in a bad way. There are ways that you can lessen the bitterness of dark or extremely bright colored frostings, but the taste is usually better in frostings that are left their natural color.
I've literally spent HOURS trying to arrive at a certain shade of frosting that a customer has requested, only to end up frustrated because finally, the color was there, but the taste was less than desirable. Figuratively speaking, we sometimes try to "color" ourselves differently from our natural shade to make ourselves look a certain way. But being yourself, embracing your unique abilities, talents, gifts and quirks is the surest way to be different. And coloring yourself to look like or even compete with others tends to leave a bad taste in the mouths of those who experience you. So what color(s) are you, naturally? Bold, royal blue? Passionate red? Soft and subtle, pink? BE just that!
