This is a beautiful cake!
But I learned my lesson long ago about trying to dye white fondant black - either start with chocolate fondant or make your own homemade fondant.
My favorite recipe for black fondant is black marshmallow fondant - so easy and cheap and it uses chocolate chip morsels so you don't have to use so much black coloring gel.
