I am new to using fondant and my husband wants a jeep cake for his birthday. Can you color fondant or do you have to buy it in the colors it comes in? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks icon_smile.gif

Hey welcome to CC!

Of course you can colour fondant yourself icon_smile.gif It is best to use paste or gel colours to colour it so it doesn't go sticky and all you need to do is put some colour on your fondant with a toothpick a little at a time (if you want to get a dark colour you can put a little more at a time) and knead it into the fondant and keep doing so until the colour has dispersed properly and is nice and even (unless to want a streaky look or want multiple colours on your fondant not mixed together too much).

However if you are using one colour for your one batch of fondant you can add the colour into your fondant mixture while you are making it eg. I make marshmallow fondant so sometimes i will add the colour to the melted marshmallows.
