The May issue of Food Net­work Mag­a­zine has one of the coolest fea­tures ever inside: a cup­cake icing color chart! The chart shows you how to make lovely pas­tel frost­ing shades in every color using a basic food col­or­ing kit (red, yel­low, blue, and green).

The mag­a­zine also includes a recipe for white frost­ing to use as a base for the col­ors and a vanilla cup­cake recipe. Want to make the col­ors pop even more? Make the frost­ing metal­lic using lus­ter dust, a non-toxic edi­ble powder.

For those who missed out when the issue hit the news­stands, Food Net­work posted the frost­ing color recipes on their web­site.
