Black fondant

I am going to be doing a cake with a black tier and a silver tier. I worry about the taste of ready made fondant but don’t have time to make my own. Can anyone suggest a nice tasting black fondant?
I’m also tempted to airbrush black but haven’t done this before!!

Any help/tips would be appreciated!
Thank you :-)


Fondx Elite black is very black and has a great taste, at least in my opinion. You can also roll it out very thin and it’s not prone to elephant skin. I can’t say enough good things about it.

I just used Wilton black fondant on a cake last weekend. I thought it was very easy to use and everyone said it was delicious :)

Thanks for your replies- can you get those in the UK? X

I went with airbrushing- really pleased with the result :-)
