Of all of the icings and frostings out there, Royal Icing is probably my least favorite when it comes to taste. But it is the best for decorating. When used right, it can be one of the best icings to know how to make. So, as a way to help you out, here is our guide on how to make royal icing.
A lot of our customers want to know how to fill a pastry bag with icing. So we thought we’d show you.
We have customers ask us all the time how they can get their frosting really black.
We thought these suggestions might help you:
- Start with chocolate frosting. It’s already dark so you won’t need to use as much food coloring if you started with a white frosting.
- Use a gel instead of liquid food coloring. We carry Super Black Gel Paste.
Need more help? Here’s a few questions that people ask about black frosting:
Will black frosting stain my bowl?
If you are using a plastic bowl, then there is a chance that the black coloring will stain. However, food coloring will not stain glass or stainless.
I get a bitter taste when I put a lot of food coloring in the frosting. How do I make it taste better?
If you start with a chocolate base, then you shouldn’t have a problem with this. If you do, add a little more cocoa. You could also flavor your frosting with oils.
Why does my black frosting have a green or purple tint?
Depending upon the brand of coloring you use, you could run into a problem with the tint of your black frosting. If your frosting looks a little green, add red coloring, one drop at a time until it’s black. If it holds a more purple look, add green coloring, one drop at a time.
