I did a quick Mrs. Frankenstein cake last night for work today and used some of the Black Wilton gel coloring to make her hair and it tastes awful!

I have to do a camoflage cake tonight and was going to use black as one of the colors but now I'm worried of the taste.

How can I get a good tasting black buttercream?
(I use the all crisco recipe)

When I make black buutercream I add cocoa and make a chocolate buttercream then add some black food coloring. Since the buttercream is brown you don't need as much black which causes the bitter taste. It tastes delicious. I used it on the top hat cake in my pictures.
