I used Fondarific black fondant on a large tiered cake, it worked out but was really soft and I was stressed out by the time I was done. I use the “Mat” and it stuck to it every time I tried to roll it, so I just put it on the counter and rolled away. It came off the counter pretty easily. I have heard good things about Fondex, and I think Wilton is good for coverage but tastes nasty! I am not an airbrusher (yet) so I can’t help you out there. Good luck…can’t wait to see the final product.
