Does anyone know how to make black icing without it tasting awful??? Every time i've made it, it's just terrible!!! Help!
I think I have heard people say start out with chocolate icing...I have never tried it yet though...
I've done it starting out with chocolate icing, or just use Americolor gel drops. Doesnt take much coloring at all.
I've tried starting out with chocolate icing today and I still had to add a bunch coloring.... I've been using the wilton icing dye.... but I will definitely try the americolor. WHere can I get that exactly??
I have done it two different ways, I've used chocolate buttercream and colored it black for a true black and I've used regular white buttercream. I use Americolor gels and the color is darker and takes much less with this brand. When I've used white buttercream, the color is slightly light but will darken after a short while.
I've also used Wilton in the past, and it's great if you want gray buttercream.
Once you use Americolor, you'll be hooked! I dont like Wilton at all for black coloring. Just google it, there are several places that sell it.
awesome! Thank you!!!!!!
I hate to say it, but if I'm using it for details, not covering the whole cake, I use canned fudge frosting, it is so dark and doesn't take much color, and definately tastes better that the flavor of black food color gel. lots of luck
