Hi everyone!

What is the best brand of fondant to use if I need bright, vivid colours? I ask this because I purchased Fondx to do a 3 tier, hot pink cake, and no matter how much Wilton Rose colour I used, it stayed a pale pink! Very frustrating!

On the Fondx container, it does say that it's best if not used with airbrush colours, so maybe this has something to do with why it won't take bright colours well? Im not sure!

Does Satin Ice work better if I need bright colours? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

The satin ice pink is very bright. You won't need to add any additional coloring to it.

for red, black and bright pink, i use the pre-colored satin ice fondant, since fondant can get sticky when you have to add all of that gel coloring to get the right color. good luck!
