I need to make a large batch of black MMF. I can't even bare the thought, I have only made some pcs of black and it was a nightmare. Does anyone have a tip that makes to easier? less mess, mine stays so sticky it seems to seperate, doesn't roll.etc

I start with a chocolate MMF...adding extra cocoa and then add black until it is the color I want. REALLY chocolatey and have to sometimes add some liquid so it doesn't get too dry - but easier than using a TON of black coloring. You could also buy black pre-made...or airbrush it black.

I have made mmf and just put some black gel color in the melted marshmallows. It worked just fine for me, was a great color and just right texture.

There a recipe on her for truly black mmf. Search the recipes. It uses melted chocolate. I used this recipe for my guitar hero cake and I added the americolor super black to the melted marshmallows and chocolte before adding the powder sugar. It turned out great and tasted great too.

i have tried all three versions of black (and red!!) adding color after to mmf, adding color during the mixing process and making chocolate fondant. i think, for me, making the choc.fondant with cocoa was the best result. didn't change the texture too much and had a wonderful flavor! good luck!! (p.s i do not recommend making the MMF first, then adding color=nightmare!!) icon_lol.gif
