I know this is probably a silly question, but if I want marbled fondant, do I just start with white and add the colors I want (gel colors), or do I actually marble white fondant with already tinted fondant? Also, can I do 3 colors? I want red, white, and black if possible. Any help is greatly appreciated!

amanda, mix your colors separately. Make fat log shapes of each of the colors then kind of stack them together and squish, maintaining the three separate colors, then roll into a log again and twist it loosely (like a candycane) then roll it up like a snail, squish again and repeat the whole thing until you get the effect you want. I just posted a marbled cake in my pics if you want to take a look. HTH
