NEED BROWN OR BLACK ICING? For brown icing melt
unsweetened chocolate and mix it into your white icing. It's not only brown,
it tastes great too! For black icing, just add black gel coloring to your brown icing.
You'll use less black coloring and the icing will taste like chocolate!
THE SECRET TO DARK RED ICING Making dark red
icing can be a challenge unless you know the secret. Make your icing a day
ahead of time. That dark pink icing will darken over time and turn into the
red you need if you give it 24 hours. I like to make my red icing using maraschino
cherry juice as my liquid. This turns my icing a nice pink then I don't need as much
red food coloring. Add some almond flavoring and your icing will taste WONDERFUL!
