I only use Sarin Ice but use their Dark Chocolate fondant if I need black. Only takes a few drops of color to make it dark enough. Tastes like fudge brownies to me!

Thank you everyone for your quick responses. My grandson, who will be 6 at the end of July, has been looking at cakecentral for weeks trying to figure out what he wants. Seems like they never pick anything easy. I have never covered a round cake with fondant so I guess I will be learning something new.

Duff's black (Fondarific) using a coupon for Michael's, for me.

You'll be able to roll it fairly thin, even as a novice, fix slight dings with the warmth of your hand, and fiddle with it longer than with other fondants. Tastes very good, too.

Warm it slightly on 30% power in the microwave for 10 seconds. Be careful rolling it. They suggest powdered sugar, but I find it can dull the surface if it gets on it and buffing with another piece of the fondant doesn't fix the dullness it creates. I also haven't found that spraying it with Everclear fixes that issue, either. Maybe a bit of cocoa powder would help.

I keep Duff's dark brown and black on hand. Tastes great but those two colors are such a pain to make by hand.

Did not know that Duff used Fondarific as his go to for his craft line.
Not surprised.
It is pricey, but IMO by far the best fondant available to the home baker.
Rolls so thin that I used only 5 lbs to top a 14, 10, 8, 6 round wedding cake.
It stays moist and stop me if I am crazy here... it absorbs some of the BC crumb coat.
I have cut quite a few cakes covered with it and alot if not all of the bc was gone.
Most important it really tastes great, even leftover from fridge was still moist.

I use wilton chocolate fondant mixed with Duff's black fondant. I just add black gel coloring after I mix them together. You can see the Harley cake I did in my album. Duff's is too expensive and tastes good while Wilton is cheaper and tastes ok ( I always use coupons). For accents, you cant use Duff's because it will never get hard!
