Food ingredients manufacturer Macphie is launching a range of Rainbow Frostings to help bakers capitalise on the cupcake boom.

The range features a wide choice of colours and flavours, including vanilla, blueberry, lemon, caramel, chocolate, strawberry and mint. Rainbow Frostings are ready to use and have a rich, smooth texture that pipes easily and holds its shape.

Category manager Gillian Rattray said: "Macphie Rainbow Frostings give bakers a raft of colours to play with to create attention-grabbing cupcakes. They are not just restricted to cupcakes and are ideal for catering for children’s parties, celebrations and special events."

The frostings contain no artificial colours or flavours. They come in a range of packaging options including 10kg pails, 5kg pails and 12x1kg ready-to-use piping bags.
