can anyone tell me how they get royal icing dark black? I have seen those fantastic bride and groom cookies on here and would like to make them for a friend, however, I have never had any success tinting my royal icing black. No matter how much color I use, it seems to be a muddled gray. If anyone has been able to do this and doesn't mind sharing their tips, I would greatly appreciate it! Also, if using just tons of black food coloring is the answer ( although I have tried this, LOL!) does it affect the taste the way using tons of red would??

Thank you
