A friend wants me to do a cake for her DD and it needs black fondant. I have tried before and can not get it down.
What do you suggest as a good brand to buy, something that taste atleast halfway good
Thanks in advance!
PS~ this will be my first NON FAMILY cake
I use Satin Ice black and I always add some soft white chocopan. It tastes yummy.
Satin Ice, baby.
Satin Ice. Without question.
I love Satin Ice Black Fondant. It is wonderful
My 2 cents.
Use your regular fondant and airbrush or paint it black. No one wants to eat a mouthfull of black.
I use a brand called Sweet Inspiration. It tastes good(kind of like tootsie rolls, a little chocolatey), and it's easy to work with.
on this topic, does satin ice have the same tendency to fade as self-dyed fondant? I'm going to be doing my 2nd competition cake this year, and want to do it in red. Last year I did self-dyed pink, and it faded considerably in just the 3 days it was on display. Luckily, judging happened before it faded. Any thoughts/suggestions?
I have to make a tophat cake for Labor Day and I was going to make the Choc MMF with Black color added but I might just air brush it black so that it doesn't turn everyone's mouth as black.
Thanks everyone for your response. I have some white already done so I might try painting it and see how it does.
Does the Black Fondant turn your mouth black?
The cake wont have much, a few zebra stripes and some stars
I'll add to the votes of Satin Ice. From experiance, it does not turn mouths black. At least its never happend when I've been around. Good luck!
Ive used Satin Ice and no black coloring left behind.
you can also start with chocolate fondant and add a little black in if you want a flavor variation.
satin ice is my favorite, both chocolate and vanilla. you can also buy small 2 lb colored containers @ www.intotheoven.com
