How do I make black fondant? - Page 2

post #16 of 25
I find the price of premade fondant ridiculous so I make my black fondant. I start with the MMF recipe and at the point where I add some powdered sugar into the melted MM, I add 1/2 a cup of Hershey's dark cocoa powder. Then I add maybe a couple of tsp. of wilton black gel color. It looks quite black and doesn't taste bad to me.
And I don't get the gel color on my hands at all because of the way I make my fondant. PM if you want me to explain it to you.

I make mine, too. I use a jar of powdered black and then add black gel food color. I find that cocoa powder gives mine a weird texture.

For covering an entire cake in black, I swear by Fondarific black in their buttercream flavor.

I find that SI black dries too fast and leaves little crumbs on your table. It also dries with too much of a matte finish for my preference.

DITTO!! Save yourself some serious time and trouble. Satin Ice Black is very nice, and by the time you waste all your food color (and money) on trying to make it, you are going to end up going out and buying it anyway.

With black fondant, I ALWAYS buy it. However, I really needed it this week, and went to Intotheoven.com, and it was nowhere to be found! And they didn't respond to my email about it. So now, I am up the creek without a paddle because Global Sugar Art wouldn't have it in time. Can I dye my chocolate fondant to be black easily?

If you dont have time to buy it, and you need a quick fix, use the darkest fondant you currently have, like a chocolate/brownish color, then get a can of black food coloring spray and spray it black... it'll take a few coats to get a nice black, but it'll work. Just make sure you let each spray layer dry first, or you'll get a gooey lumpy fondant surface!

I have a cake supply store and we sell black fondant from Satin Ice. It is very good; the only kind of fondant that I use. I sell a lot of black and red fondant and I have never had anyone complain. It's the best that I have ever used.
Also I have used black powdered color. It is a mess but it will turn really black. This is a good choice if you need just a small amount of black. If you can't find any without shipping being so expensive PM me and I tell you how to get some.
