    Nice work Terry. Plsssss, how did u achieve the black color of dat tie on the shirt. Used up a whole can of wilton black color gel while making a car cake for my son’s bday bt stil dint get black. Had to use it dat way tho. Pls help in case of nxt tym! Tnx!

    • Terry Adido says:

      Hi. I used wilton black color paste. Yes, it does need a lot of color, but not as much color as you used. Secondly, if you leave the colored fondant to sit for about a day, it gets darker. Lastly, I have read about people putting cocoa powder in their fondant to darken it before applying black color paste. The results look impressive.

      • Prissygold says:

        Tanx. Wil definitely try the cocoa on a smal batch next tym. Tho started with wilton brown b4 adding the black tho the black was a bit watery not gel-lyk. Mayb its ‘wilton-made-by-my-nigerian-brethren’. Wil probably use anoda color brand nxt tym. Tanx again!
