Going to color fondant black, about 15lbs worth = Any suggestions??
Thanks for your help... Just wasnt sure if making it myself would make it bitter or not.. or if I would even be able to get it black enough.
If you've still got time you really should just buy it precolored. It's almost impossible to do it yourself without changing the consistency of the fondant. At least, you'll need to use powdered color.
I've got to second Leah's suggestion, especially for such a large quantity. Get some Satin Ice and call it a day.
I agree with Leah as well. It will be so much easier and hopefully won't have any aftertaste. If you do decide to make it at home I would think that the best thing to do would be to start with dark chocolate fondant and then darken that, I've never done this but I'm thinking maybe that would work best.
Yes! Buy it! I tried to color just a small amount of white fondant, black, and let me tell you..it was just a dark gray. And it took forever! I can't even imagine trying to get 15 lbs! Save yourself the hassle and buy it.
