Can I make coloured bread in a bread machine?

Thought it might be fun to make coloured bread for the sandwiches for DS's birthday party. Aside from the fact that it is obviously total folly to invest any time/effort in food which will get ignored/trodden into the carpet, has any one any experience of doing this? How much colouring would I need to use and which colours work best?

I can't see any reason why not. A couple of decent drops of colouring should do it. I used to make rainbow marble cake - blue, green, pink and yellow. Didn't have dc, just for my own amuseument blush

My friend made gorgeous pinky red bread in her machine by putting sundried tomatoes in the mixture. I'm not quite sure how it worked but it was very pretty. And obviously very edible.

Bettymum, that's a great idea, thanks.
