I am trying to match a ribbon on a wedding dress for a cake. I had bought a 4 pack of colored and ready to use fondant but the light brown I thought would work was not so light. I really can't go to the store before the cake needs to be ready so I'm needing some pro tips! I have black, pink, yellow and green gel colors and white fondant... can anyone tell how to make a really light brown from this???

So you need a lighter brown mix small amounts of the brown into you white until you get the correct shade of brown.

that is the best way. heat both fondants in micorwave for about 15 seconds or so, it makes it easier to blend.
