I want to make my brother a Guitar Hero cake but am not sure how to make black marshmallow fondant. Can anyone help me? Thanks!!
Make it chocolate fondant and then add black food coloring.
Yep! I'd start with chocolate and then add black as well. If you have Americolor - their superblack is awesome! You don't have to use as much as you would if you were using Wilton. The color is just much stronger. Plus it comes in a nice squeeze bottle.
I make chocolate too and then kneaded in black wilton food coloring until I got the right color.
My question is does it matter if you use name brand verses store brand? I tried making MMF once and it came out kinda rubbery... Do you think if i used name brand it would help avoid that?
I have made 3 batches of MMF using Kraft Jet-Puffed MMs, and each time the fondant turned out beautifully. I think it depends who you ask...some people prefer store brand, others prefer name brands. For me, the Kraft brand worked best.
I have used both and havent had a problem with either.
I also use chocolate fondant first. Never tried Americolor but think i might.
I also like using the Kraft marshmallows. I recently found them in a vanilla
caramel flavor. I loved it...I didn't need to add any food color and used it
to make the teddies on my daughters baby shower cake and the scooby cake I just finished. (Both are posted here) The fondant smells and tastes like caramel candy and comes out a tannish brown color.
Hmm sounds delicious think ill try it. I think i might also switch the brand of sugar and marshmallows im using and see if that makes a difference.
I want to try to use fondant. However I feel I am not ready for it.
I have never heard of chocolate fondant before. What is it, and where would I get a recipe for it?
