How do you get your black Buttercream jet black? Mine always turns out gray.

You've got to use A LOT. I put in in with my water/milk and mix it in early, be sure to use a gel and not a useless liquid. Americolor is my fav.hth

i actually made some last night. i made it last night to give it time to sit. when i used it today it was a very nice black. i made chocolate buttercream and added black food coloring gel. it looked kind of silver ish but letting it sit over night it really helped.

Americolor! I swear I didn't believe it until I needed a black BC for a cake. Bought it at Hobby Lobby and couldn't believe the difference over Wilton. Also, it doesn't taste horrible like when you need to use all that Wilton black.

Americolor makes "Super Black" and it works really well. I buy that and the "Super Red" in big bottles at Hobby Lobby.

Start with chocolate frosting and add the gel food coloring before milk so it doesn't thin out too much.
