RULES FOR ACHIEVING BLACK ICING WITH MASTER ELITE BLACK

Master Elite Food Colors (shop here) are INCREDIBLE for royal icing, fondant and buttercream! But with Master Elite Black AND White, you will need MORE of these two colors than any other Master Elite to achieve the rich black or bright white tones you're looking for. This is why we only sell these two colors in larger jars. Master Elite Black and White are ACTIVATED food colors, which is why you will need 2 tbs to 2 cups of icing (royal icing or buttercream)!

We always encourage artists to stop a shade or two lighter than what you're trying to achieve with Black, because the color will deepen and develop ... check out the results below after just 1-hour of development time!
