I made 3 Mmf fondant today, purple, green, and pink. I wanted strong colors but turn out pastel colors. What can I do to make the color vibrant? I use Wilton color. Also, the fondant is already made and resting! Please help

Put in more color! use the whole pot if you have to, you may knead more powdered sugar in it if it gets too soft though.

Not sure, just a little bit, I was afraid it will taste bad if I put too much

If you use red, it will. Get them almost as dark as you want them, them stop. They will darken slightly upon resting.
