I have made 3 cakes covered and decorated with mmf, The problem is that I would like to have darker or deeper colors but always seem to end up with pastels. I don't know what to do because the mmf is white. lol Thank you to everyone who answers all of my dumb questions. This is the best hobby ever. I am enjoying learning from everyone. Thanx.

You have few options. First, try adding the coloring to marshmallows well they are melting. This helps to get the color darker, quicker without having to take so long needing the color in. Second, to get a really nice black, start with a chocolate MMF and add black gel to that. You will get a very true black. Your third option is, and a LOT of people tend to do this when it comes to red and black fondant, is to buy premade colored fondant. A lot of people buy red and black Satin Ice fondant. And fourth, you can also get very deep shades airbrushing your cakes the dark color. A lot of dark colored cakes have been airbrushed. HTH icon_smile.gif
