Yesterday I posted on the decorating forum about how could I get my fondant "red" so I could make a last minute joke cake for my son. I had some left over fondant from a wedding cake I made a couple of weeks ago but wondered how on earth I could get it red enough for a Budweizer beer cap.
Well they said to just knead in a lot of the no taste and let it sit as long as possible so that is what I did. I added 2 large dollops of red and kneaded it in...then wrapped it tightly for the night. I was pleasantly surprised at how red it got much so I had a hard time covering the "rim" gold. But it all worked out I guess, I am pleased with it and I hope our son gets a kick from it. It is for his birthday today.
Thanks again, I don't get to post, bake etc. as much as you guys but I really do enjoy the hobby. You guys are all so helpful.
Here is my version of a Budweizer beer cap.

P.S. Sorry aobut all this mishaps with the photos...not sure what I did wrong there. Hope these show up alright.
