I use Americolor gel colorings...When coloring fondant black I take only a small amount of fondant at a time and color it black (like a baseball sized amount)...Once all the fondant I need is colored black I knead it together...It takes a whole lot of kneading to get fondant a true black color.

I have the most success with black food coloring when I use chocolate fondant and add the black to that.
