colored fondant

Forum: Cakes & Cake Decorating

Hi guys

How do you get bright green or blue ( dark, royal blue)?
I use Wilton fondant and gel colors. When trying to color green or blue I get pale shades.
Do you buy colored fondant, if yes, which brand, or maybe there is another colors I can use to color fondant?

thank you

I find that you use a Whole lot! I’ve recently purchased sugarflairs colors …they seem much stronger for less paste.Add a bit of black for really dark colours…gradually

Use powder colour…you can get it perfect colour without changing so much the consistency of the fondant. It’s work when i make for black, red, blue. Sugarflair colour also not bad…but wilton is the hardest one to get intensity colour. I tried it all…so i know which one…until now i use all those 3 brand depend what colour i want. Hope this can help you.

If the colour is really dark, especially black, I just buy it ready made. Less stress, and less black colouring on your hands!

Sugarflair colours are great though for colouring fondant.

I use Sugarflair most of the time, they hold their colour really well.

I have however just started to use a gel colour by Magic Colours, really good colourings!

Instead of using cornstarch or powdered sugar to keep its consistency I use any no- stick baking spray. Preferably ones with flour in it and I’ve notice cause of using that when I am trying to achieve a color I get it a lot faster and I use Wilton colors as well.
