Is the pre-colored Satin Ice fondant light or dark?
Also wondering about the pre-colored Ivory Pettinice fondant.
I am looking for a very pale, pale shade of ivory.
Does anybody know?
My suggestion would be to mix some pre-colored ivory with some white to get the pale shade you want, that's what I do. I use Pettinice ivory, which is a nice shade but will add white if I want it lighter.
I agree with cakedout. mix some of the white with the ivory, until you get the right shade you want. I do this often. Works out pretty well.
I wondered about mixing with white. Thank-you for the info!
I used ivory satin ice on the three tiered cake in my pics with the brown bow. it's not too dark...
I just love that cake. It is gorgeous! Thanks for giving me an example. It isn't that dark, but I think my friend wanted the ivory to be even lighter than that. Which stinks because I'm talking about over 20 lbs to color!
oh wow!!! 20 lbs, I can't even imagine. I had to mix a big hunk of pale blue the other day and had to split it into 4 chunks and eventually work it all together, it was not fun! Maybe you could get 10 lbs of ivory and 10 lbs of white and mix it together. I wonder if the dough hook would work in the mixer? Has anyone ever tried that?
I never thought about using my KA to help mix the color in. Hmmmm.....I wonder if that ispossible? Anybody?

I would imagine that would strip the gears out of my KA! Man...I have tortured my poor mixer!
