does anyone know.. if there is a special coloring that I can use in order to make my buttercream --True Black?


Whenever I do it --it tends to come out greyish black.. I want a deep black coloring..


Any suggestions?

Americolor super black is the best.  I always start out with a dark green color first and then add the black to get it the darkest.  It takes a lot which I hate so I always try to steer clear, but if it is absolute then that's your best bet.
