Additional Tip for Coloring Fondant
by: Chan

To minimize mess, I put my fondant into a gallon-sized Ziploc bag to knead it.

Extra bonus tip: hand the bag to the nearest eight year old to be kneaded. It is an easy way to get your little ones involved while actually saving you time!

Adding Color To Fondant
by: Michelle (admin)

Start by dipping a toothpick in paste or gel food color and swipe it through the fondant until all the color is on the fondant and not the toothpick.

Fold the fondant onto itself to prevent the color from transferring to your hands and knead until the color is uniform throughout.

Start with a tiny amount of color and add more if you need it. Also, be aware that the color will darken over time, so what looks like a pale pink today will be a not so pale pink tomorrow!
