Default Cupcake colours

What is better - Artificial colours or natural colours?

It depends on what you're trying to achieve and who will be eating it. If you're baking for someone with health concerns or dietary restrictions, the natural route is better, although you won't achieve the same saturated colors. If the appearance of the final product is what's important to the client--for instance, a company that wants a cake in the colors of their logo--artificial food colors will be the better choice.

Personally, I like coloring frostings with reduced fruit purees

In my opinion I would say that it depends on the situation.

Of course natural flavors are better than artificial flavors.I am a housewife and I often make cupcakes for my children.I often prefer homemade cakes since they do not have any artificial flavors.But sometimes I would add some food flavoring agents just to enhance the taste.Natural colors are better for our health too.

I would recommend that natural colors are the best. The artificial colors have several negative consequences. Hence it is good to avoid it.
