I never heard of using cake frosting itself to dye (isn't there way too much sugar in there?), but I know some people have used the gel dyes that are used to tint frosting - Wilton's is the brand that comes to mind. Any craft or other store that sells cake making supplies would have it - JoAnn's, Michael's, etc. It's very concentrated, probably has little to no sugar in it and I think is only good for natural fibers (mohair, wool, etc., but not cotton).
