Hi, I am making marshmallow fondant and need to make a small piece of it a spider man or Superman Red. Can’t be pink or a weak red need a red red . Any tips on achieving this red. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. I can always count on this forum to come through for me.
Really your best way is to buy it ready colored It would take nearly a whole pot of geo color to come close & then it will taste bitter
That’s what I thought but was hoping there was another way. Thanks so much for the speedy reply. Happy 4th of July
I had to make red for a spiderman cake as well as the Dear Zoo inspired cake I did recently. I used the Wilton Color Right red. I think it calls for 50 drops of red for every 24 ounces of fondant. Basically it is 2 drops for every ounce of fondant you need. But I just added it slowly. I think I kneaded the fondant out and drop in 10 drops at a time. Knead, add color, knead, add color, and repeat till you get there. I definitely didn't use the entire bottle. Took a bit of elbow grease though but the color turned out great.
As others have said, it just takes a lot of gel color. You should make it the day before, because it will get darker over night, sometimes a lot darker. I died a double batch of marshmallow fondant red for a guitar cake. It took forever and a ton of color and work, but it did not taste bad.
Well the voice of experience spoke — talking over mine LOL Since you say you just need a small piece you might give it a try:) Pay attention to the pix Sandra posted Wear gloves so you don’t end up w/blood-red hands! If you do get color on your hands, rub them w/toothpaste on until it’s gone
kakeladi, I wish I had you standing beside me to remind me to put on gloves before I did this! And I didn't know the toothpaste trick either! I was colorful, lol!
