It's just food colour!

I'm starting to think that the cake and cookie decorating industry is just one big scam to get us to buy horribly over-priced products just to make treats look good.

It's the only explanation I can come up with why a 5 kg bag of sugar only costs $3, but a tiny little 63 g bottle of coloured sugar costs almost $2. That's like more than 50x the price of regular sugar! I mean really, how hard can it be to turn plain old sugar red or green? It's a scam, a total scam I tell you!
