Tinting Shredded Coconut is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is such a simple technique to add texture and color to treats. I have always tinted it green for grass on baskets or cupcakes. However, I recently used the green shredded coconut as grass on a field for a soccer cake. I think it would also look great spread out on the bottom of serving platter with a cake placed on top. Don't forget to lightly air dry the coconut or it will form a clumpy mess.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is so simple. I love the fact that I can put it in a ziplock and my daughter is able to help me. She gets to mush the bag around and loves watching the coconut change colors. We made a rainbow on our cake with different colors of coconut. So cute.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have used this technique many times. It's great to be able to add tinted texture in any color you choose! One of my favorites is an old stand-by: top cupcakes with green-tinted coconut; add piped Easter eggs; top cupcake with an arc of a colored pipe cleaner for the basket "handle".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from another thing kids LOVE to do, believe me. Getting them in on colouring coconut is easy. They get to mash something around in a bag and shake it up, and you get to finish decorating the cake with their help.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is easy to do and it looks great, but the coconut gets really sticky when trying to color it. It's great for making grass and textures though!
