Tinting Coconut

So--this may be sort of a silly post--as maybe the whole world already knows how to do this...but while making my little guys B-day cake I needed colored coconut and had never done it before. So maybe some of you are like me and hadn't done it before either.

1 tsp water

And there you have it:

The perfect shades of coconut to do this:
