How do I tint fondant black without the after taste and not make it chocolate?

the only thing i could tell you from experience may turn purple. that's what happened to me, but someone here told me to add yellow to it, let it sit overnight and then add a bit of black...and it worked! icon_wink.gif

I think Americolor is the best color that you can use. You just really have to use quite a bit. But the good news is that Americolor is much stronger than Wilton. You'll use a lot less of it! And I have never noticed a taste with it.

I use Americolor too without the taste.
