I just ordered pink fondant it is satin ice. Well it is like neon pink i need it to be lite pink. Can i just mix it with some white to get it liter or is there something else that i should do?
That pink is so bright, if you want a pale pink, you'll have to use a LOT of white! It does work that way though. The pale pink cake in my pics was made with white fondant, with a pretty tiny ball of SI pink fondant mixed in.
Take a small amount of the bright pink and mix it with a larger amount of white fondant. You can play with it from there to get the required color. Hope that helps!
You definitly have to mix it with a lot of white to get it a soft pink. If you want a richer shade of pink just mix a little red color into it...this make it a deeper color and not so neon.
Or you can just add pink paste coloring to your white fondant and that will most likely give you the results you need faster, with less work, and with less material wasted. Just my 2 cents. HTH
That's the great thing about Satin Ice precolored fondant. They make it really intensely colored so that you can customize it by mixing it with white. For a pale pink you need a tiny bit of the pink and a whole lot of the white.
Thanks for the tips. I have not really worked with colors in the past so was not sure what to do.
