@Shea Thank you for that hack! Will try it out. I would love the chocolate taste too
The only thing I am wondering is, will the addition of cocoa powder not impact the consistency of Royal Icing? Also, will it delay/ impact Royal icing drying and will it impact how its consistency is when it sets- like will it be more crumbly after it sets? Could you share your experience please?
Also, if you find your hack with Purple or other deep colours, could you maybe let me know or maybe write a post so that everyone will know?
Hi, I got the idea to add cocoa from Lilaloa's blog https://www.lilaloa.com/2013/0...-school-cookies.html. I obviously did not read the instructions well, I do not make a paste with cocoa, just add directly to RI with a few drops of black gel food coloring, and get a really nice black. The icing sets up well, has a nice 'bite', tastes like chocolate. Cookies stack well, no soft icing, and no problems with bleeding, cross fingers. Hope this helps, Shea
