Is there any easy way to tone down already colored fondant? I purchased blue & pink fondant, only to find out that they are a little brighter than what I was wanting. If not, what is the best way to color fondant? With this upcoming baby shower.....I want the color to be perfect. Help please!!!

Yes. Start with white and knead in small amounts of colored fondant. thumbs_up.gif

Also remember that fondant usually dries one shade lighter.
