I hate working with black fondant. I purchase Satin ice black fondant and had such a hard time with it. It looks stain and breaks easily. I was trying to use it on my letter tapits and try to do a decorated boarder for the cake but it kept breaking. please help if anyone have any ideas on what's the best black fondant to use.
AI've had pretty good luck with Fondx. I've used a few of their dark colors, and they haven't given me trouble. I've never used tappits, but I was told that a little tylose added to fondant will help when using them.
Thank you! Will try the Fondx.
AI have used regal ice on a black corset cake and hand bag I was really pleased with that it was really pliable :-) good luck
I use Satin Ice, I find you have to knead it A LOT before you use it to avoid the cracking you're talking about.
I would love to try regal ice. Paul Bradford uses this fondant. Definitely thinking of ordering this fondant to try.
Yes, I tried the black Satin Ice and I did knead it was to soft then I did not want to add icing because it would lighten the color up and I needed pure black.
I was successful using black Satin Ice to cover a cake but for some reason this time I just was having a hard time for smaller things.
2/3 Satin Ice + 1/3 Duffs works great for cake covering. 2/3 Satin Ice + 1/3 Wilton Black works great for cut outs.
Always use Satin Ice for black and red and never had any problems. Works like a dream. How long have you had it?
I purchased it a day before I tried to use it.
Will try this method.
My vote is for Fondx as well. I have many grey hairs that have "Satin Ice" written on them. Never had an issue with the Fondx and find it so easy to work with. Wish I could understand why SI never worked for me, like so many others, while tons of people swear by it.
AFondx's the best
I HAVE NOT TRIED FONDX. WILL DO.
Interesting, I've only ever used Satin Ice and have experienced cracking too in the past on occasions will have to give Fondx a try.
AFondarific is my favorite!
