OK I love the Michelle Foster fondant but have a question. In using butter the fondant has a tiny bit of a yellow tint to it..I need to color the fondant blue and light pink.
Do you think making it with shortening is the best idae or can I just make it as directed with butter.
Yellow and blue make green so I am a bit concerned.
Anyone know???!!!!

I'm extremely new to this, so you can take it or leave it icon_smile.gif , but I just made this fondant a few days ago. I colored it lt. aqua blue which does have some yellow it in, but it definitely looks on the blueish side, and both baby pink and bubblegum pink, which both looked as they were supposed to. My opinion is the yellow from the butter is so slight that it wouldn't affect the other colors, but I'll be curious to see what other members think.

If the slight yellow tint really concerns you (it can cause blues to lean more toward the green side), you can add just the tiniest amount of violet gel paste to it and it will turn white.

The violet cancels out the yellow.
