Hi! Welcome!

The best way to color fondant is to add a little bit of gel color and knead it in until it's all the same color. If you have gloves you may want to wear them, or have rainbow hands for a few days.

If you coat your hands with shortening first, you won't have color-stained hands. icon_smile.gif

The only way I will color fondant now is by microwaving it first. This makes it soft and pliable and so much quicker and easier to blend.
