Good Afternoon Fellow Cakers!


I am going to be starting a cake here soon and had some concern about the color of the Red Satin Ice Fondant that I thought I could get an opinion on...


The color of the fondant is more of a cherry red. I want a darker red than this... What would be my best route to take for making this color darker? I was thinking I could knead in a little black food coloring or even airbrush over it VERY lightly with black? Has anyone had really good success with making this fondant darker? Any Tips or Tricks?


Your advice is always greatly appreciated!

AI was not happy with the brightness of the Satin Ice red either. I bought it because I HATE colouring fondant strong colours; my hands get stained and it affects the texture of the fondant. However, I did have some brick red already and I found that if I mixed it together with the bright red (about a 3:1 ratio of bright to brick) it gave me just what I was looking for.

AI would use brown, not black. I would try a bit first, use a marble sized piece and add a dot of black or brown and knead it in.
