My blog post Decorated Dog Treats With Colored Sesame Seeds was dedicated to the concerns that abound regarding red food coloring. Read the post for an in depth discussion. In summary, there is no conclusive scientific evidence that it is harmful for dogs.
Red is the perfect color for the winter holidays. And red colored treats are attractive as these "pupcakes" from Lazybones Pet Treats show:

Your eye can't help but be drawn to these cupcakes. The sesame seed decorations will set into the sugar free frosting which dries hard and smooth and needs no refrigeration. What a lovely treat to bring when visiting friends with dogs over the holidays.
Many bakers of dog cakes prefer to use sesame seeds as decoration because they are all natural.
Color your own or purchase sesame seeds already colored in various colors and other bakery supplies for dog treats through K9Cakery.
