Whenever I made black or dark red royal icing it stains teeth and starts to taste a little icky. Is there any other way of doing this? Someone told me to add corn syrup, and I've also heard that cocoa powder helps the black.
AFor black, add cocoa powder to get it really dark, wont need alot of black.
I use powdered food coloring for red.
Does that stain teeth less?
AIm not sure...I've never used royal icing on a cake in large amounts. Never enough to stain teeth
AHeh heh. Didn't cake wrecks have an awesome picture of said stained teeth a while back?
