I bought the wilton orange and i tried it in fondant and it looks almost like fluro orange icon_eek.gif is this what it is like for other people? Is there anything i can add to make to a more normal less bright orange or a deeper orange? Any help would be great!

I haven't used it yet myself, but here is a bump in case someone else is around to help you out...

I have used it but only a small amount to have a pale orange and it looked good.

I can only suggest toning it down with a tiny bit of black perhaps - this trick worked with the green wall paint in my daughter's bedroom so can't guarantee success with icing icon_smile.gif

I'd try adding a tiny bit of black, blue or green. I'm with you on the fluoro orange though. Their rose pink does the same trick!

The orange is definitely fluoro if you add too much - you wont get a deep orange colour without adding black etc.
