Food coloring

I've been making some little cakes today and I dyed the cake mix so they look like legos. How much food dye is too much though? The box said to use about 50 drops for a box cake but I made it from scratch and used about 60 drops all together. Is this too much?

Beautifully colored cake - Sweet and lively cake
I am not a expert when it comes to baking my dear but I am a cake lover and I love cakes with beautiful colors. I don't really eat them but I love to look at them. Now because I am not an expert, I can't really tell how much dye your cakes need. But I am certain the instructions in the box tells which is the exact amount needed so I think you should rather follow. If you dropped 60 then that is over 10 drops than what is instructed. I don't know if that is still safe. Experts should answer this question.
