I started out with chocolate buttercream frosting because I was always told that was the best way to achieve black frosting; however, after an entire bottle of Wilton black gel coloring I have an awful greyish chocolate color. Need to frost this cake tonight and the store by my house is out of black color!! Any suggestions for a quick fix to help save this disaster???
Wait two hours. Seriously. The color will develop over time.
You're a life saver! It's already starting to change but I figured it would never change to the black I need. Thanks a million!!!
Just for future black icing needs, I've always been told the powder colors give a deeper color than the gels. I just bought a big bottle of black powder online but I'll bet you can get some at Cake Craft Shoppe or Larry's since you're in/near Houston.
Good luck with tonight's cake!
I think Americolors are better....
