. Are you trying to get to black? I wouldn't recommend it for a meringue frosting. Adding cocoa powder isnt the issue. It has been my experience (several tragic ones) that meringe frosting and deep/dark cokors arent meant to be. I just use fondant. Don't even bother anymore

Cakelove2105 I've done both.  Added cocoa powder to baked meringues, they were tasty, but I prefer simply white meringue best.

I recently added cocoa powder to Swiss Meringue ButterCream when making camo cupcakes to get the brown & black colors.  It tasted exactly like a cup of cocoa rather than tasting like chocolate fudge. 

Of course we all have our limits, but how can you possibly find your boundaries unless you explore as far and as wide as you possibly can? I would rather fail in an attempt at something new and uncharted than safely succeed in a repeat of something
