Coloring royal icing dark colors?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Whenever I made black or dark red royal icing it stains teeth and starts to taste a little icky. Is there any other way of doing this? Someone told me to add corn syrup, and I've also heard that cocoa powder helps the black.

Thanks!

For black, add cocoa powder to get it really dark, wont need alot of black.

I use powdered food coloring for red.

Im not sure...I've never used royal icing on a cake in large amounts. Never enough to stain teeth
