I have done this several times, but my black turns like an army green color when added to my gumpaste! I am using Wilton products, even the Wilton edible marker turns green when writing on the gumpaste. Has anyone else had this happen? Why and how do I make it BLACK not GREEN?
I had the same thing happen to me. I bought non-Wilton gumpaste and used the Wilton black and it turned green. I asked the lady at the specialty store why that was so. She told me when not using Wilton gumpaste, you need to use Color Craft coloring or another brand to keep the color true.
There appears to be a color imbalance in the primaries. See my post on this thread.,.... http://cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopict-703115-.html
So I am assuming that the quick fix would be to add some red to the mix? But what about when I am writing with an edible marker? It still turns green even with the marker...should I stop using the wilton brand everthing? Know of a brand of makers/gumpaste/ and food coloring that wont green so easily?
this happened to me, but my choc MFF or MMF? anyway turned dark green when I added Wilton black to it.
Maybe Americolor is better? I know it's been better for me in coloring royal...
