I don't know if it's too late...but I thought I would tell you that I use cocoa powder instead of corn starch since it's dark. That's all really. It works just like regular fondant. =o)

thankyou for your response. I knew there was something different that I had to do. Just about to start now. Wish me luck. And when I finally get round to learning how to post pictures I will post the finished product.

Good luck! icon_smile.gif

I use Satin Ice chocolate fondant and use Crisco (vegetable fat) on my rolling surface to prevent it from sticking.

What an interesting idea to use cocoa powder!
