If you decorate cakes often, you should considering buying both pre-made red and black fondant. This is a 1.5 pound package but you can purchase them in smaller amounts also. It is very difficult to achieve a true red or black fondant when simply adding coloring gel to white fondant. It takes A LOT. Save yourself the trouble and work with pre-made! I rarely cover a cake with red fondant, but I often use red fondant accents. You can knead in a bit of tylose powder if you need a consistency closer to gum paste.
