I'm looking to make a light brown fondant with almost slight gray tones to it. The typical brown seems to have a pink or red tone to it that I would like to avoid... Any suggestions?

Thank you!

I made some fondant last night that I thought looked very much like cappuccino color. I had some white and some gray made up and added a tiny bit of brown to the white. It wasn't the color I wanted - as you said it had reddish undertones. So I added about 1/3 the amount of that in gray. I then just added tiny bits of brown until it came out a nice color that I liked.

Fondarific sells a mocha fondant it is so good. You might want to check out their site.

Order the sample pack for 6.00 includes shipping. I don't really care for coffee but the mocha was so good.

When I need mocha color, I put in some unsweetened cocoa powder. Just a very little bit. It doesn't change the flavor so much as it changes the color.

Thanks for the ideas everyone. Echooo3 - do you just add cocoa to white fondant to color it? Thanks again!
