Navy blue fondant

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Can someone tell me how to make navy blue fondant? And will it be bitter like a lot of dark colors tend to be?

TIA!

Start with royal blue ready made fondant if you can find it like Fondarific..It has funky flavors..Then add black to it and it will turn navy.I don't know about the taste but it should be okay...

Yes, covering 2 tiers with it & I haven't mastered airbrushing enough to do the entire cake.

I've never used Fondarific but I'll see if I can find it. Does it taste good, aside from coloring?

I just made a dark blue, but not quite navy. I used Wilton's royal blue, with some black added. It's the "Living Room" cake in my profile. I didn't want to go much darker, but I think it would be no problem.
I used MMF. The taste was fine, but it turned everyone's mouth blue!

Wow...LOL

Ok. I will look for Fondarific, which is my 1st choice, so I don't have to kill my hands. If I can't find it, then I will kill my hands & color it.

Thanks for all your input!

Fondarific comes in neat flavors like Lemon for yellow,orange,Strawberry and tutti frutti etc..I don't know what blue is but it probably is blue rasberry or blueberry.Do a google search to see where it is sold by you.

I just made some navy MMF, I actually added ALOT of the Americolor navy when it was in the liquid stage and let it sit. It didnt quite come out navy, came out more of a country blue, but with just a little black and royal blue it came out perfect. It was used for the Major promotion cake in my photos. Good Luck!

Ok I made MMF for my Dallas Cowboys football helmet cake in my photos. I used CK Navy Blue color and added a little bit of black. It worked perfectly...in fact that was the easiest part of that darn cake!

Hello MacsMom I want to take the time to thank you for the BC flavor MMF I made a batch to try it and I love it. I don't know what it was. the fondant looked sooooo white and the flavor was so good. I had try the regular mmf recipe and it always turn out a diferent color. (cream color)

I also have a question for color fondant do you add color to the mmf? do you recomend using the spray gun?


thank you so much
