I used Wilton black to color my RI but it has a funny taste b/c you have to use so much, is there another option other then buying already made black icing?

Try Americolor or chefmaster coloring.You need less and it doesn't taste bad.

Chefmaster is all I use.

I use Americolor exclusively. For RI, I color it in small batches. I've found that doing this way I can achieve a more intense color without losing my will to live in the process. icon_lol.gif

Just do a google search for it. I but it from Dixies Icing

i've found that if i start with a chocolate buttercream (made with adding melted butter and dark chocolate, not just cocoa), i don't need to use nearly as much black food color to get a very pure black color. I've used wilton and americolor, and there is just a chocolate taste left behind.

If you use chefmaster you don' t have to add any other color. It takes very little color and you don't have to wait hours for it to intensify. Check out the red on my hamburger cake. It was used as soon as it was made.
