AWhere did the pink come from? What pink things did you have in close proximity?

AI had the same problem when I used powders. What I do is coloring the fondant some days before I need it and then knead it one two times before I use it. The powders here have salt inside which attracts the water if it's humid and makes your fondant look spotty. I actually stopped using powders, unless I color a whole batch and can mix the powder with the milk while making my fondant (that helps) and switched to gel colors.

This is probably it...I get specks when I use powder colors and put gumpaste through the pasta roller sometimes.
