sometimes colors just happen
I tell companies that their products are inferior. I walk right up to a beautiful person and tell them they are beautiful. I played rugby in college. And...I add too much coloring to ALL of my icing.
The truth is, I LIKE color. I just keep adding it until my arm is tired of stirring. Which actually doesn't take that long. I'm a weak stirrer. Its true. You can ask my mom. When I was child and helping my mother make cookies, I was always SO relieved when the addition of the flour fell on one of my brothers' turns. So, maybe if you are having a hard time getting dark colors, you should get a brother.
