Me again. If my choc BC isn't as dark as I want, can I add some brown gel coloring?

Yes, it works like a dream. I actually make brown icing all the time with gel, when I need the color but don't want the chocolate flavor (yes, as hard as it is to fathom, not everybody is addicted to chocolate!).

Yes you can. That is why I like to add melted unsweetened chocolate to my bc because it has a rich dark color as well as taste. icon_smile.gif

Don't worry, it's going to taste delicious icon_biggrin.gif ...I just replied to your other thread, so it may be too late to sift the cocoa and sugar! LOL

I read somewhere here as well, that adding a eensy, teeny, tiny bit of violet gives brown a deeper color.

Now may not be the time to try that, but maybe it is!icon_smile.gif

Let us know how it turns out icon_smile.gif
