How do I make black fondant? Is this possible? I think I've seen Wilton fondant (which I know is yucky) in black at Michaels... should i just get that?

Thanks for any help or suggestions!

Satin Ice makes some and I just ordered some today from global sugar arts. If you make your own start with chocolate fondant then make black

Thank you! I'll do it the chocolate way, this will be the first time making fondant, so I want to practice before buying anything online!

I too just purchaced some black Satin Ice from Global Sugar , but I have to say I'm a little wary...I had some trouble with some SI recently...I'm hoping to not run into the same issue!

I've been using the SI black fondant and really like it. It's a little soft, but pretty easy to work with.

I'm not sure the size of your project but if you are working on a small item (like a figure and in a pinch) you could make some chocolate clay (aka chocolate plastique, etc) and tint it with black candy color. Easy.

Larger project - yeah, I like Satin Ice fondant - also try Chocopan. Stay clear away from Wilton fondant unless its not going to be eaten or you just want to practice with it - taste is beyond gross.
