Yes, that is what you do! (and we all started somewhere, so ask away!) icon_wink.gif

I'd take the white fondant and add blue to it myself if you are going way lighter. If you just wanted a little ligher I'd go with adding the white into the blue.

Did that make sense?

Just curious OP what brand of blue fondant did you purchase? I ordered a 5 pound bucket of Blue Satin Ice and I hate the color. I wanted to use it for my grandson's Batman Cake but could not get the blue I wanted regardless what I did to it.

Just curious....thanks.

To lighten the color of your fondant you can use Bright White by Americolor instead of wasting more fondant to achieve your color
