You can it will just make the fondant yellowish in color. You will then have to adjust your coloring for eggplant.

Difference Between Light & Dark Corn Syrup


By Kathleen Jurina, eHow Contributor .

Corn syrup is made from corn starch and glucose. It is used in many dessert recipes and as a cost effective substitute for cane sugar in mass produced foods, sodas and candies.
Light corn syrup is a combination of corn syrup and high fructose corn syrup, seasoned with vanilla and salt. Light corn syrup is clear and tastes moderately sweet.

Dark Corn Syrup
Dark corn syrup is a combination of corn syrup, molasses, caramel color and flavor, salt, and the preservative sodium benzoate. Dark corn syrup is a warm brown color and tastes much stronger than light corn syrup.

Light vs. Dark
Light and dark corn syrup are incredibly similar and can be used interchangeably in recipes. Dark corn syrup adds more flavor to a dish.
