Default true black and red mmf

so while doing my hubbys bday cake i figured out how to get true black and red mmf. i used about 1/4 of a bag of red and choclate candy melts. make white mmf and then melt the red or black melts in a seperate bowl then need them into the fondant then add your coloring. the fondant is a little bit stiffer but not much it may feel like you are needing for hours but it will mix in. hope this is useful to everyone.

How do you get true red and black for buttercream? It seems to take a lot of coloring to get good shades. Is there an easier way?

Great, thank you. I wouldn't have thought to start off with purple.

To get a true black fondant or buttercream first start out with chocolate.
For a good red,(in buttercream) start out with yellow. Not a neon yellow but a medium yellow. Some start with pink and let it set a day,that works too.
