Can I use Wilton white-white icing color to lighten fondant? I made the fondant too deep of a blue and need it to be a lighter shade. It says you can use the wilton white with buttercream but I'm not sure about fondant. Or should I just buy more white fondant and mix that in with my colored fondant to make it a lighter shade? Thanks for your help!

i would use more fondant instead cause the white-white stuff is to watery and will make a big mess. be safe and go with more white fondant just add little at a time till you get the color you need.

hope that helps

Definitely would NOT add the white food coloring to fondant. That stuff is very thick and prone to staying sticky.

As Shaddi says, lighten the fondant by adding in more white fondant.

I made the mistake once of adding the wilton white to fondant and it made the biggest mess. The fondant was garbage as their was no saving it. So I would just add more white fondant to it to make it lighter. I did buy some americolor white and have had luck with that. HTH
