Q: I just bought some hibiscus powder from a local spice shop and am very excited to start using it. It's very tart but in a good way and without tasting outright acidic. I'm just not sure how or where to start experimenting with it.
I've tried searching online but everything I've found is for hibiscus syrup or whole dried flowers. Please help!

Editor: Kayla, how cool! We haven't used hibiscus powder, but we know that it can be stirred into hot and cold drinks and also used as natural food coloring. See this post for another frosting with natural food coloring:
