Is there a way to make dark brown without using chocolate?
Doesn't Wilton sells brown food coloring? Anyone here know?
Yes I have that but it doesn't get dark just a kind of baby poo colour! I tried adding black but that just gave it a greyish tinge.
When I need a brown, I just mix purple and yellow to get it there, adding a touch more yellow if I need it darker.
Thank you. This does make a nice brown but still not the dark chocolate shade I'm trying to achieve. Maybe it's just not possible.
You're welcome, but I can easily get my icing as dark brown as I need it just by using those 2 colors.
The icing color will deepen overnight in the bowl, just mix it a day or two before you use it.
Someone else told me a while back the same thing about the color turning a darker color once it sits overnight in the refrigerator. They said that any color will turn to a deeper color once it sits. I was using red and had to wait a couple of days for it to turn a darker red.
