I'm new here, and I need help.
I tried making gray fondant - I put a drop of Wilton black coloring into my melted marshmallows, and when I mixed it all up it looked perfect. But now it has been sitting in my cupboard a couple of days, and it has turned purple! What happened? Can I fix it, or do I need to start over? Thanks!
that's a Wilton issue. There is another thread about the same thing. Sorry A lot of people use Americolor. I mostly use it and don't have any issues with the colors. I'm not sure how you could fix it.
Where can I get Americolor? Is it only available online, or is there a store somewhere that carries it?
Do you have a local cake supply store other than a craft store? If not, you can order it from Global Sugar Art or www.fondantsource.com
hobby lobby in my area carries americolor now. You could try there if you have one. hth
It looks like I'll have to order some Americolor, but I doubt it will be here in time for the cake I need to finish Sat. morning. What do you suggest I do for that? Should I add more coloring to the existing fondant, or should I start over and just make the fondant that day?
If I were you, I would get a can of Wilton Black color mist. With Halloween just around the corner all the stores have black out.
adamsgama, will that make my final color gray?
No sorry, I misunderstood. I thougt you were trying to make black fondant
I would start over and color the fondant that day. I don't know how much fondant you are coloring gray, but I would attempt to color it gray in very small batches and then mix them all together. Maybe that will help from having any purple show thru.
