Hi, could anyone tell me what I need to use to achieve a proper black colour to use for piping?I have tried a few times and all I can get is a horrid grey!
Any advice would be great. Thanks in advance. xx
if you are using BC, i always have to let my black sit for a day so the color can deepen properly. i also only make black icing using a chocolate BC recipe since it will start a darker color, rather than trying to turn white icing black.
I start with chocolate BC, and add black to that.
I use Americolor's Pure Black....I used it in white buttercream and let it sit for half an hour and got a deep black color...and I didnt have to use a lot either! They sell it at Globalsugarart.com
