help! i need to cover a cake in dark red fondant. i dont have an airbrush machine, but may have to think about buying one if i cant get dark red fondant any other way. it needs to be the color of a dark red rose. (not SUPER dark but not bright red either). could i maybe buy the red satin ice and dye that? if so, how? any suggestions??? thanks in advance!

hi... can you not buy the pre-coloured red fondant and add some black to it to make it darker? it'd be hit and miss to get the exact colour you like... i'd do it with tiny bits at a time... have some red colouring on hand aswell to help adjust it.

hope it works for you... whatever you decide... i hate working with red fondant... any dark coloured fondant actually! lol

Start with the red SatinIce and add a bit of brown. Comes out deep red to maroon, depending on how much brown you use. Black makes it sort of muddy.
