Hi, the easiest way is to buy the fondant already black. You have to use too much black color and it makes it sticky , etc So, now i just buy the black.

It's best if you buy primary colors like red and black. The amount of gel paste you need to add to get a true black will totally ruin the taste of your fondant....Ask me how I know.

I was just reading here on C.C that some folk start out with chocolate fondant and THEN add black coloring. You might want to try that method.
