Does anyone have any suggestion on getting brown without using chocolate? I have done it in small batches before but Im concerned about making it taste funky. Thank you!
I typically use cocoa powder to help lessen the amount of coloring needed to make brown or black.
I'm not sure if anyone else has any suggestions, but I think you will need to use all coloring to get the color you want. Black will help get it darker quicker instead of using a ton of brown.
Im wondering If I use a little bit of cocoa powder If it will just darken it like I would like without making it chocolate frosting?
I usually make my own brown by mixing in red and green coloring together...it gives me a darker brown than I can get using a brown coloring alone. HTH
I was thinking you didn't want to use Cocoa powder (I had a cake once for a little girl who was allergic.)
I like the Hershey's dark cocoa powder and I think that will help, but I think you may still need to use some coloring. The more cocoa powder you use, the more chocolatey your frosting will be.
If you have an airbrush, just airbrush the cake dark brown. Tint the frosting as brown as you can get it and then airbrush to get the surface really dark. Looks like dark chocolate...
