please can somebody help ,i need to make black buttercream
Make dark chocolate buttercream and add black food coloring.If you start with chocolate,you wouldn't need so much black,but if you don't then you'll need a lot and the taste of your buttercream will change due to lots of black gel coloring. Good luck.
Americolor makes "super black". Get it - it doesn't take alot to get a good black color and won't change the flavor of the buttercream. Their "super red" however - not the same story. It tastes funky.
black buttercream will stain teeth! I have made it once with lots of gel coloring. It looked cool but everyone had black teeth! If you are able, use black fondant or airbrush the fondant black.
I do it like solascakes. I start with very dark chocolate buttercream, then add Americolor Super Black and it only takes a little to get a good deep black. And it tastes like chocolate.
I actually keep the leftovers in a small container in the freezer. That way when I need just a little black for eyes or whatever I don't have to make it every time. And because I don't always have dark chocolate buttercream on hand.
You could try spraying it black with Wilton food color spray.
