I made the easy mmf and added lots of dk brown americolor. It is still not so pretty looking. I need the look of chocolate satin ice. Does anyone know what I can do to darken it up? If I add black would it help?

Yes, a little bit of Americolor Black makes it a richer, darker chocolate brown. Just a teeny bit at a time though, you can always add more! icon_cool.gif

I am having hte same issue. Did adding black to your brown vanilla fondant help darken it to a chocolate fondant color?
