Hey guys...I've started to notice that when I do my cakes using MMF and wilton paste color...my MMF comes out more of a pastel color, instead of a bright bold color. In some cases this is better. However, there are times I would like a nice bright color.

I know an airbrush can do this...I dont happen to have one of those though.

add gel color at the melted marshmallow stage...you will need to use more color for deeper tones and then you will have to knead in more powdered sugar to counteract the glycerin in the gelpaste.

Make sure not to use too much color though it will break down the mmf and ruin it.
Most colors (especially Wilton) will darken a develop over time.
Let the mmf rest over night if possible and see what color it turns.
