Hi, Wilton and Americolor both have black color's. I use the wilton one and I havent had much trouble getting black from MMF (but i use alot of black gel paste). If you make the fondant from scratch you could subsitute some cocoa for icing sugar.
Hope that helps icon_smile.gif

It helps if you start off with a chocolate base this way you wont need as much black to darken it icon_smile.gif

I always just use the Wilton Black. But I have found to get a true, rich black you do have to use about 3 to 4 times more coloring then you would normally have to use for another color.
