This was the first time I ever tried making a fondant cake, and I was pleasantly surprised. I'm not sure whether 10X or 4X confectioner's sugar works best... Had no real problems with this icing - it tastes a LOT better than other fondant I've had. I got lots of compliments on it, despite the fact that my cake was a little droopy after being transported across three states. I found it was necessary to refrigerate the dough after working in the dye because all the activity made it a little sticky. Refrigeration makes it easier to cut out shapes, roll, etc. (but I didn't refrigerate the cake after decorating it). If you just want one color, I suggest adding dye before adding the sugar - it blends a lot easier.
