AYou may have to add more black since fondant is white

AYou need a LOT of colouring to make true black.

same here, I purchase black and red, I can never seem to get those colors the way I want. Satin Ice as well.

AWe always use purchased black and red. Just not worth my time and effort to knead in all that colour.
