Made my mmf, turned out fine. The fondant itself is fine, however the color is horrible! I used Wilton's rose, hoping for a rose color, but instead, got hot pink. What can I do outside of buying the ingredients again and starting completly over? I thought about maybe melting it all down and adding white, would that work? Any suggestions are appreciated.

I'd let it sit covered in a little crisco and wrapped up for an hour or so first, I have found that the colors deepen a bit. Also maybe try adding a touch of brown to bring down the hot pinkness? Good Luck!

if you are going to add any color rip a piece off and test what ever you are adding. cause you don't want to mess up the whole batch. I would try adding burgundy to a piece.

FYI I think Wilton Rose is always hot pink. Looking at their color chart, I think you wanted 'rose petal pink' not rose. It's very misleading as a color name. I wouldn't melt the MMF down. I would just knead the white color in.
