I've a cake due on Friday night. I just made 2 cups of black bt using Americolor Super Black. I started off with brown color first and than added black. It didn't turn completely black just dark grey but i understand from this forum that if you leave it overnite, it will turn black. Just tasted and it is awfull. Furthermore, my tongue turned black. Why is this so? Don't want customer to complain.

Please help. It is now 1am and i am going to bed.

Hope to get some good advise.

Thank you.

Did you start off with chocolate icing or brown icing? I think it taste better if you start with chocolate icing.

yup, start with chocolate. You'll use way less color and it tastes soooooo much better. icon_smile.gif
