AHi everyone I need some black fondant but the one and only place I can get it from , from where I live are out of stock. I know I can't really colour black fondant myself I tried before it goes way to sticky before I've even got that real black look. So if I paint it on does it eventually dry ? And if it does how many days does it take to dry?

Asda are selling the coloured packs of icing now they are offer for £1 at the minute if you have one near you to try.

I have never painted a cake black but have used an airbrush to do one and it dried fine so I don't seen why it wouldn't. I think I read somewhere that you should mix the paste food colouring with clear alcohol such as vodka to paint on a cake and the vodka evaporates, also you should try to do the brush strokes all the same way and not go over a part you have already done while it is wet. hope this helps
