I cant for the life of me make black fondant i always make my own MMF because it taste better but i am tempted to buy black help me please.....
First make chocolate MMF and then dye it black. It's much easier that way and uses less coloring.
I always buy black SatinIce (same for red). I can never get MMF to be a true black.
For black and red it is best to purchase the pre-colored Satin Ice.
Yep, buy the SatinIce. You'll never go back.
Satin Ice for black and red fondant. No question. Try it, you'll like it.
I make mmf and add Americolor Super Black to the melted mm before I add the powdered sugar. I just put a few generous squirts in the bowl. The black color may lighten up a bit when the sugar is added, but deepens again after an hour or so. Ends up jet black every time with no kneading!
Ditto on buying the black. I've tried making chocolate MMF and coloring it black and it's definitely easier, but it still doesn't get to a true, deep black. I always cringe when someone wants a cake with black on it but I just smile and say "okay" knowing I can just order what I need!
I make my MMF, add a tiny bit of coco powder and Wilton Black color... and let it rest for 24 hours. If it's still not black, I add more color.
thanks eveyone for your advice....
Does anyone here find the black satin ice Fondat to be really soft? Maybe it was the batch I bought. I also found that it's not as smooth as regular white fondant. The black color is great though!
