I will be making one batch of fondant. The fondant will be separated into 4ths to make 4 different colors. What is the best way to do this?
Thanks so much,
I use a toothpick and dye the fondant once it is seperated. I wash my hands in between each color that way the first color doesnt move to the next color etc. I am sure there is a better way to do this but this is what method I use.
As pag41989 suggested, knead the color into the white fondant. Add your color gradually, one drop or dab at a time until you're familiar with how far the color goes. Keep in mind the color will darken over time, so stop adding color about one shade lighter than your goal.
I wear vinyl foodservice gloves when kneading in color to protect my hands. Some people wear latex gloves, but I don't advocate that. You will need to wash your work surface between colors.
