Coloring Fondant to Deep Colors

Hey all!  A few weeks back, I wrote a post about fondant.  I did not really cover coloring fondant, as I often prefer to avoid the hassle and simply buy the fondant pre-colored.  This, however, is not always possible, and you are left to color your own fondant.  The lighter colors are easily done with gel color, but the darker colors are extremely difficult to achieve without ruining the consistency of the fondant.  One of my favorite blogs, cakesdusoleil, just wrote a post covering how to color without changing the consistency.  She deals with blue, red and black which are the hardest of all of them.

As a side note, she is also an incredibly gifted sugar artist with amazing tutorials ... if you have a few minutes take a look.

Happy Baking!!
