Can anyone tell me how to get gray buttercream I need it for a r2d2 cake
Tiny amount of black coloring
I agree with crisseyann. Start off small and add.
Black food coloring mixed with white (buttercream or fondant, etc.) makes grey.
sometimes using black it turns greenish. i had a student once add yellow icing to purple icing and it made the best grey i had ever seen. perfect for a ship. do practice with just a little bit first though if you give it a try.

This is true, because you can also mix grey by using equal amounts of all three primary colors (red, blue, & yellow). Purple is red & blue, adding yellow completes the mixture of the three primaries which results in neutral grey.
CWR41, thats good to know too. i will give it a try next time i have those colours handy.
