I am looking for an easy way to make black fondant. I use MMF and usually just add cocoa powder and black food coloring, but always seems to get crumbly and takes for ever to get black. Is there an easier and better way to do this? Thanks!!

Buy black Satin Iceicon_wink.gif If I'm making black, I usually color the fondant brown first (no cocoa powder, just gel color), and then add black from there.

I was in a bind last weekend for black fondant. The True Black MMF recipe is great! It tastes wonderful, rolled out great... it was fantastic!

i haven't made the True Black MMF recipe. But I ALWAYS add my black coloring to the melted marshmallows BEFORE adding any powdered sugar. That is how I did this cake.

And no issues with it being crumbly because I could still adjust the amount of PS that went in.
