Tip:  using egg whites instead of whole eggs, helps keep the batter a pure white.

2.Pour half the batter into a medium mixer bowl.  Mix in black food coloring until a rich dark color is achieved.  Be sure that the color is thoroughly mixed.  I used about 2 teaspoon of color.

3.Fill 2 disposal decorating bags with each color of batter.  Lay flat until ready to use.
