If you add balack color to chocolate BBC, will it turn black??
Yes, it works very well; try to leave it overnight if you can to develop the best color.
What black does everybody use? I've only tried Wilton's(is that my first problem?) and I've only gotten mucked up shades of greenish grey....
I use Wilton also, that's what is for sale around here. If your buttercream is yellow (such as if you use yellow butter) at all, you'll get greenish.
Starting with chocolate will get you much closer to black.
I usually cop-out and just by the dang Wilton black in a tube! Will definitely have to try a dark chocolate!
I start with a deep chocolate buttercream, then add Americolor black (it doesn't take very much). Works great! Does not give you black teeth or lips, either!
I used to use the Wilton but you have to use so much and it tastes NASTY. I switched to Americolor and use much less without the disgusting taste.
Does not give you black teeth or lips, either!
Ah yes, the dreaded black jelly bean effect. Can't tell you how many birthday parties I've been to where all the adults either scraped off all the frosting or passed on the cake all together because of funky frosting staining!
