help please! Black MMF - Page 2

post #16 of 19
i just tried making some a few hours ago. i was going to do chocolate first but totally forgot and just started with white mmf and added a butt load of black food color. it seems to have worked pretty well but the texture seemed to be off a bit so i'm not sure how it's gonna roll out. i added wuite a bit more water than usuall when mixing it up. i also used a different brand of mm this time so that might have made a difference too. i have tried getting black with the wilton fondant before and it turned purple in spots over night so i ended up spraying the entire cake with the food color spray. i was making purple fondant with the wilton again(both times 1/2 gum paste) and it turned blue overnight so i don't know what the deal is. could have something to do with the store bought fondant ing or the gum paste?

I too plan to made a black cake eventually. However in the mean time i did made some biscuits recently that needed black icing. I started off with a chocolate fondant made with cocoa then added the black colouring and it came out great! It will take a little bit to get to black and may look grey for a while but keep going. however it might take alot of black depending how much you are colouring. Here is how my black turned out:

When I made the black MMF for this cake http://www.cakecentral.com/cake-photo_1323358.html , I added the black coloring (tons) at the stage when the marshmallow is melted just before the icing sugar is added. It turned out a nice. You really have to put a lot in because like the other posts, it can turn green on ya.
