hi guys,


i made too much red fondant and i was thinking if i needed another color can i use the same fondant and add more food color to change it to maybe black or dark purple for halloween? or can i add more white fondant to turn it pink?

AYes you can recolor fondant, just think of the color wheel.

However, depending on how you achieved the red in your fondant-let's say for example you just used a ton of no taste red I would only add white to make it pink simply because adding too much coloring can change the fondants consistency.

AYou can also save it.

Or try mixing some of your red fondant with yellow fondant...
