I am making a cake for my mother's upcoming 50th birthday party and I need to make black fondant. I know with icing to use chocolate and then dye that black but what do you do with fondant to make it black? Please help.

The Natural Color Fondant Multipack includes a ready-colored black fondant you could use. If you prefer making your own, color the fondant dark brown first, then add black icing color to make black.
