If I don't use gloves to color fondant, my hands end up smelling awful. Gag me awful. I've tried scrubbing them to death. Lemon Juice. Does anyone else have this problem?

I don't have that type of problem.

I use fondant and color them some vibrant colors and never had a problem with my hands smelling (and I don't use gloves).

Okay, so now I'm thinking I have some kind of really unique weird problem. icon_biggrin.gif Promise I'm clean and don't typically smell!

What brand of food coloring are you using?

I have never heard of this problem... you might try rubbing them with some baking soda..

Wilton ... now that I think about it, it happens mostly when I use brown or black. I wonder if it's because I have to use so much coloring although the fondant doesn't taste like the smell.

Are you using Wilton fondant too? Cause Wilton fondant smells TERRIBLE to me! so maybe it is exacerbated by the dark food coloring.

I had to this past weekend because I ran out of Satin Ice. This may be the problem then...I know that the texture is so different.
