Hiya! I'm new to the forum and new to making cakes (been making them on and off for a year now).

I am looking for the easiest way to make black fondant (without air brush)

Does the chocolate fondant color well? Usually I use white to cover (Virgin Fondant from Bulk Barn)

I find after coloring fondant, its either over worked/ sagged or too dry and tears!

Any suggestions would be appreciated icon_surprised.gif)

I never colour fondant black unless it's a massive emergency and there is no other option. I can never get it a deep enough colour without a mess or it drying out. I would suggest buying ready coloured only icon_smile.gif good luck
