I used Americolor food colorings! check them out here. Its one of the best known brands used in cakes as it producs nice colors that don’t wash out when baking and they don’t have any taste.

I used the red and green color gels.

I painted my loaf before I baked it! as I wanted to see if the colors will fade… and to my surprise the colors remained exactly the same.
