I didn't make it to the store I usually get my satin ice today so I picked up a container of duff's blue fondant. I need a dark blue. According to my satin ice card dark blue is 2 parts blue, 1 part black and 1 part pink. I'm assuming if I use the same formula w/ the duff's for the blue I'll get the same reaction... my question is this. What is the easiest way to knead this all together? I've never mixed this much fondant before and doing it by hand is going to destroy my hands... is that my only option? If so... is there anything I can do to make these easier to work with? I know w/ the duffs you need to microwave it for a few seconds first to soften it. `

Sorry, I don't know of anyother way to color it besides kneading in the color, unless you have an airbrush. His fondant is usually pretty soft/pliable once you micro it for a few, so it shouldn't be as bad as some brands out there. You can also wear gloves if you don't want blue hands for a couple days, lol!
