I made a batch of SMBC. Half butter & half Hi-raito shortening. I need a deep brown color so I used about 1/3 cup cocoa powder and added a little bit of black color paste. I think it turned purplish rather than deep brown. I stopped & put the icing in the freezer. I was thinking of adding melted bittersweet choc.

my question is? will the SMBC break if I add melted choc, (cooled of course) or is it ok to add as much needed to get the deep brown color.

I'm using it to make a grand piano. customer wants it deep brown.

please help! I need it this weekend.

You can add as much chocolate as you like. Just sometimes it gets too soft from the warmth of the chocolate... but you can chill it back down no prob.
