I'm making a cake that I want to put small black dots on (the cake will be white). I don't want to use fondant because I want them to very small dots (like using a number 3 tip). I'm afraid to make black BC because it will taste bitter or stain. Is there a ready made black BC or decorating frosting that anyone recommends or is there a way to make it so it doesn't taste bad?

TIA

I buy the small tub of Wilton's decorators chocolate and mix some black gel in. Gets really nice and black and doesn't taste too awful. I think any chocolate icing base would work though.

I buy a bucket of black buttercream from Sam's and add the cheapest chocolate frosting to it. I usually mix together a spatula scoop of black bc with a tub of chocolate and the black is so black - that it remains totally black.

I start off with store bought milk chocolate frosting, and add black gel. quick and easy! nice glossy color and doesn't bleed too bad!

For a small amount of black, I use the wilton pre-made frosting.

Wilton makes different colored frosting in tubs. i would suggest that.
