Step 2: Its like play-dough, but better!
Add some black / Grey food coloring to about 1-1/4th pound of fondant, and knead until you get an even color all over. Be sure to use powdered sugar, or else you'll end up with a big sticky mess!!
Once you have it to the color you want, and its even all over, roll it out until its big enough to cover your cake all over, including the sides.
