I was suppose to buy food color ( gel) instead I bought icing color. Does it Do the Same thing?

I believe gel food coloring and icing color are the same, but regular (liquid) food coloring and icing color are definitely not the same -- they have very different concentrations, and it takes far less icing color to achieve the same results as regular food coloring.

I'm pretty sure it is the same thing - most icing coloring is gel or paste in form, and I'm pretty sure most gel/paste coloring gets marketed for icing. It can be used to color just about any foodstuff, though (other than chocolate in most cases.)
