Ok, so I had this cake I was doing for a friend on Monday. I bought Americolor Regal Purple, I was using Fondx Virgin White fondant. I tried and tried to get it purple, I used most of the tube of color and all I got was a pretty blue color. So, I decided to go ahead and use that color blue, anyway I was making some stars for the top and decided to mix gumpaste with fondant, I tried coloring the gumpast with the regal purple and behold it was purple, just the color I was originally wanting! What the heck. Now I am working on another cake for someone and need some black for accents, so, I try coloring last night same fondant and it looks black at first but then turns a green color. Needless to say, I was totally freaked out!! When I was doing the purple color my hands turned a bright pink, took me forever to get it off. I guess there is something in the fondant that does not take color properly, I don't know, any ideas???????
