MY REVIEW

 Yes, there is. Paste food coloring is thicker and more concentrated.  You only need a little bit to make your desired colors.  If you were to use your regular food color liquids, you'd need a lot of liquid and end up making your icing all runny.

Can the recipe on the back of box of cake mix be used or is there a reason that buttermilk etc is added? Does it make it more dense so it can hold the "lollipops" better? And can any flavor mix be used instead of the white?
