For black fondant I start with chocolate MMF using Rhonda's Ultimate recipe. I have had good success with this.

If you're going to make it you need to start with chocolate or brown fondant but I'm with kneehah. Just buy black and red. It's not worth the hastle and charge appropriately.

Also I believe some people airbrush their cakes darker colors so they don't have to buy a special color but that only works if you have an airbrush machineicon_smile.gif

Yup, I am with the others. For red and black it is worth buying it. Way less time and your hands don't look like you have butchered something when you are done!

I agree...I buy black and red!! I'm done stressing about making the color deep enough. Then all that dye changes the fondant texture too.
