Now it's time to color your fondant. You can do this as one giant lump or a few smaller lumps. Going the smaller lump route tends to be the less difficult route since it is easier to knead smaller portions. I separated my 10lbs of fondant into 3 portions then added 1 teaspoon of black food coloring gel to each portion and kneaded them until I got a smooth, even dark gray to charcoal coloring.
