I've read many post on here about how to get black icing and not gray or charcoal. And no matter how much black I use in my homemade bc it still looks ashy. Last night I used Sams icing for the first time and mixed a little bit of americolor black in it,and let it set for about 45 minutes. When I was mixing it I thought it was going to be the same as my icing, but after letting it set for a few minutes it got jet black. I couldn't believe it, I finally found something that taste and looks decent. Hope this helps someone.
Thank you for sharing, I have Sam's icing I will do my black with it when needed. I also have TROUBLE getting a true black. Thanks again.
Me too. thank you for sharing
I just purchased my very first 28 pounds of Sams Club BC to use on this cake... It is fabulous... if is a HUGE time saver.. Texture and consistency is perfect.. I added some Almond extract to cover up the commercial taste then whipped it. But other than that, everyone loved it and it just made me and the bride so happy.
i use sams icing. i just bought smaller bucket of black, red, and blue from them yesterday. i add vanilla to it.
