I tried to make brown royal icing to decorate bear shaped cookies. But even with good quality food color paste, I couldn't get it dark enough. This was the answer.

Thank you for sharing! I needed a brown royal icing for my acorn cookies and this worked perfect. The original recipe worked creat for the color of the body of the acorn, then I added a bit of black gel food coloring to deepen the color for the cap. Great tastin also!!
