I am doing a cake that requires black fondant. I don't have good luck making fondant so I will be purchasing the fondant. I would really like to know what the best tasting store bought fondant you like. I think I would like a chocolate flavor to go along with white vanilla flavor.
I usually buy chocolate fondant from golda's kitchen (the golda's brand) as it is quite dark and only needs a bit of black gel to make it nice and black. The taste is amazing- and it is great to work with! you can roll that stuff so thin....
hope that helps!
I like satin ice. It is a good black color.
SatinIce's black fondant is actually vanilla!
I've mixed Satin Ice Black with Satin Ice Dark Chocolate and gotten a very nice result--works well and is a good color. Tastes great, too.
I am far from as advanced as many of y'all but for BC and for MMF I do a chocolate base and then add black to get the color. Get's less "stainy" for the eaters as well.
If its a sculpted cake I usually use regular white fondant and then airbrush it black so that there is only a thin little layer of black. Less funky taste and less staining.
I use Satin Ice, tastes ok and is perfect color.
