can u use food colouring to colour that white xmas cake icing! want to make a black and white cake for my sis!

the ready made stuff! Yes you can you just kneed it in. You may need to add some extra icing sugar. It takes quite a bit of food colouring otherwise you just get grey

Wear gloves though or you will have black hands for a while :)

You can buy black icing, from Spot light.

You can also buy black fondant from here. Look in CRAFTS> Cake Design

no= black gel wont colour white icing black- it will to start with, then it will gradually turn purple- you need to add black gel to brown icing to get a true black! So, for best results either buy ready made black, or colour the bakels chocolate fondant- otherwise you will end up with a really bitter tasting icing- plus it wont be black!
