i use brown and black to get dk brown. the rose cake in my photos was made using those two, but make sure you add the black a little at a time or you just end up with black.

I generally replace about 1/2 cup of icing sugar (takes about 8 total) in my crusting BC with cocoa. Then it takes a lot of brown gel colour.

Sorry, but that's all the tips I have.
