Are you making brown fondant or brown frosting? If you're making brown fondant, don't put as much coccoa powder in the recipe. Then you might have to add a little bit of gel paste to get the shade that you want.

If you are making frosting, I recommend buying Americolor's brown. It's so nice and easy. The color goes a long way. There's no bad taste and it comes in a nice squeeze bottle.
