I continually get asked the question "what is the easiest way to make black icing?" It is very simple... start with a chocolate icing. It is a lot easier to start with a brown color and get to black, than it is to start with white and get to black. If you only need a little bit of black icing for your cake, simply take a small amount of cocoa powder and add it to your icing first then add your black coloring. Simple as that. And remember your colors will intensify after they sit for a few hours, so if it doesn't look dark enough at first, let it sit for a bit and it will darken.

If you have a question you might like answered contact me. I would love to help out.
