Reply Fondant

If you’re trying to get a really dark colour – red, black, blue etc than it does get really sticky. I use gloves to stop my hands staining, and it is always best to colour a few days before you need the fondant. This gives it time to rest and it also develops a darker colour. If you colour it and then try to cover a cake straight away the fondant will be really soft and hard to work with.
