chocolate color bedroom ideas

hi guys i'm jenn johns today on buttercream basics we are going to master black buttercream. i'm going to show you two ways to make black buttercream the first one i'm going to be working on is going to change the flavor i'm working with 2 cups of my vanilla buttercream and all this in my


buttercream is a butter, imagine that, icing sugar, milk, and pure vanilla extract. we're going to add in a little bit of cocoa powder which is going to change the flavor. my second way of making the black buttercream is going to be without the cocoa so if you are a chocolate hater or you


have an order for somebody who doesn't want any chocolate don't worry i'm going to show you a second way to do that too so i put about a third of a cup of cocoa powder into here and i'm just going to start stirring it and kind of mixing it in with my spatula because if you've ever tried to work like a mixer or the hand


mixer with a really light powder you know what happens when you go on you turned on too fast so you get a big huge puff and a big huge disaster in the kitchen. so i'm just going to slowly mix it in and then i'm going to continue to mix it with my mixer we've got enough here now obviously if you don't have a hand mixer you can use you can just do


your buttercream completely like this with a spatula but a mixer does make it a little bit easier and a little bit quicker now fingers crossed hopefully i don't get a big disaster i'm gonna mix this up completely so for this version adding the cocoa powder in is going to give us a brown base to the start of our black buttercream


obviously it does change the flavor like i was mentioning and this is also how you just make chocolate buttercream so there you go another bonus recipe with in here so what we're going to be working with is a black gel paste this is america colors super black and black gel paste and all gel paste colors are basically just


concentrated coloring they're not like a liquid food coloring they're much stronger so you don't have to add in as much as you might with a black liquid coloring as far as i know we can't get black coloring where i live you're in canada so i've only ever used the gel paste for black and it works all of the time


perfectly for me so what we're going to do is just open up the little bottle here and squeeze in some of that gel paste and then we're going to mix that in again with our beaters so i've come to a color that's mostly a dark dark dark grey it's close to the back black but not quite as much as i wanted to be not as dark so what i'm going to do is


add in another squeeze of my gel now with people sometimes complain about the taste of buttercream taint changing to be more bitter and that's often from using too much piping gel er and too much of the gel paste and what you can find is when you add in the chocolate first it's going to counteract bitterness and you're also not going to


need as much of the gel paste as you would if you didn't start out with that dark base so i'm going to with this part up and mix in this next black part so my buttercream has been sitting for about 20 minutes and it's a beautiful dark black shade if you leave your icing to sit the dell pace will eventually become more saturated with in your icing and


you're going to get a deeper color the longer you let it sit now over here i have a piping bag and it's fitted with a 1m pip and that's a start it but you can use any tip inside of your piping bag and then for support i just have it here as with a jar and i'm just going to have you back to help me fill the bag up so take a little bit of the buttercream


from your spatula and then just wipe it into the jar and just press against that rim of the jar and that helps to get it into your bag a little bit more easier you can do it just holding it if you are a very talented and it's like this way the weightier to cheat it was going to pull this part up and then just kind of shape that down and then i'm going to


squeeze the icing down to the bottom towards my tips and while i'm doing that i'm just locking the icing in here at the talk and i'm doing that by twisting the bag and i'm going to take a piping bag just basically attire and elastic and i wrap that around there and that's going to help prevent any of the icing from


speaking out the top of the bag so we're going to use this to pipe a black top onto our cupcakes so here i just got some nice chocolate cupcakes in the top here i'm going to squeeze a nice dollop at the top and that's going to give us a lot of height to our cupcake so here i'm going to go around and just letting the air kind of building here and then


pulling that around coming to the top stopping my squeeze and then pulling away like that don't do that again here so i'm going to build the dollop in the center and then i'm going to go around just keep squeezing that all the way around going around your dollop stopping at the top and then really seen your sweet so the


second way to make our black buttercream is going to maintain the vanilla flavor so we're not going to change it with cocoa powder this time but we're looking for is to change that base color before we add the black so we don't have to add as much black gel paste in order to achieve that we're going to add the chocolate brown play are coloring here


and this is another concentrated gel paste you can see that the gel paste come in different sizes i don't use a ton of brown coloring which is why i only have a small version of this one so i'm going to squeeze in some of that gel paste and i'm going to give myself a nice little start here and if you're thinking that because i'm putting gel


paste and i'm still going to be adding the same amount we're not going to be because black it takes so long to get to black it just stays great for a really long time and so when we start out with a darker base like the brown it's going to result in the less of the black so we have to add in and then hopefully not a flavor change going to mix this up


why so you can see that the brown color from the gel paste is not as dark as it is with the cocoa powder obviously you can't it could continue to add more brown gel paste but this is dark enough in my opinion to start off with the black we are going to add a little bit more black at a time and i


want to give a little bit of a chance for that color to basically soak in and then deepen so after i mix it each time i'm going to give it probably like five minutes in order to saturate so i've let the buttercream sit for about five minutes and you can see that it's almost like a dark grey almost like brownish color still so i'm going to add in more


black gel paste and just squeeze that into there and then mix that up and this should be good for the addition of the black after we've got this totally mixed in the middle let it sit for at least 20 minutes i found that an hour is really good either you've got the full saturation of the color after that point so now that the buttercream has deepened


and it's a nice dark black here i'm going to take my spatula just like i did before i've got my piping tip down in the bottom there and again you can use any piping tips so i'm just getting enough in here now if you don't have those typing bag elastic you can basically just lock bags with your hand so in


order to do that what we do is we just kind of grasped that bag like that and then just going to give it a twist and while i'm doing that i've got my thumb and my forefinger here and this squeezing that tight so no i think is going to sneak out the top and you can do that if you don't have that elastic so since we did a classic palm talk to


the last cupcakes use this blast i'm going to do a rose that this time before rose that we just start in the middle and i just keep steady pressure and i just go around keeping it flat this time instead of raising it up last time and this one is classically kind of known as like almost like a rose that's why we're calling the road that


will do that again on this one so just squeezing it in the center and then going around the outside working your way all the way to the outer edge of that cupcake there you everybody how to make black buttercream actually it's pretty easy now a 1-1 of secret i want to let you in on is it's
