Hello! I am making a Halloween cake today for a child's birthday party. It will be covered in black b/c. Does this cause teeth and lips to turn black?

Thanks for the input!

I'm not sure, but I made red bc yesterday, and while the gel coloured my hands icon_razz.gificon_redface.gif it didn;t colour my mouth when I ate it on the cake (Or from the bowl when I was done icing icon_razz.gif )
...no wonder I haven't lost all of my baby weight icon_lol.gif

Yeah, just the way BC is, it will turn lips and tongue black for a little while.

I figured it probably would as all the dark blue bc I've made has turned people's mouths blue.

Give it a day or two and their lips and teeth won't be the only thing discolored! icon_smile.gif My oldest dd freaked the first time this happened! If you start with a chocolate BC then go to black it won't be nearly as bad.

Yep it will turn them black.
The kids will love it - warn the adults - some aren't as thrilled with the results of black BC as the kids! LOL
