Just wondering if it worked
No I haven't tried it, but if you do try it out let us know how it goes
I haven't tried it either, but thanks so much for posting this link!
Powdered colour is the way to go for deep hues. It doesn't make the fondant sticky or change the texture.
I haven't tried this but it looks interesting. I heard that powder colors work great in coloring buttercream in bright and bold colors too.
I only use MMF and have made it in dark colors using candy melts for black, brown and red. And I have mixed the candy clay in with the MMF.
I used this method last night to make black fondant using the Wilton dark cocoa candy melts instead of the red ones. I then added a small amount of super black food color and it was perfect! Handled great and tasted fantastic - just like a tootsie roll. I can't wait til I need red or another intense color. http://sugarsweetcakesandtreats.blogspot.com/2010/11/recipe-red-marshmallow-fondant-mmf.html
AngelFood4, I just realized that was your website that I found that fabulous recipe on! Thank you sooooo much for sharing that! I can not tell you how great my black fondant turned out using your method! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
this is great - I have been wondering how to fix the fondant problem i have been having - so thank you for posting this
If you make MMF, and need a large amount of a dark color, add the paste color before you add the PS to the recipe and it comes out beautifully. I make Black and Red this way with no problems, and it is so much easier than kneading in the colors later!
