Cake decorators- Satin Ice ? .:Mary:. 2 kids; Fort Dick, California 15203 posts

I know there are a few decorators on here. I feel silly asking this, but can I color white Satin Ice fondant with Americolors instead of buying separate color tubs? I would probably just buy black and red since those are my nightmare colors but for the rest Id feel like I can just dye them right?




This is a post and run, but I will be back on to check this later. TIA!

If I understand your question right yes you can. When I did it I'd dip a toothpick in the coloring and rub it on the fondant, then you just keep kneeding it til the color is even. And start with a little, it goes a long way and you can always use more. And use gloves cuz it stains! Lol

yeah you can definitely buy white fondant and colour it.
the only pre-coloured fondant I buy is black and red if I happen to need it in large quantities.

I have the coloring process down, and yes I always use gloves! Lol but I've never used satin ice. We usually make it but eh this would save me so much time and headaches.

I've never used satin ice, but I always use premade fondant

I haven't tried it either, I'll give it a shot this week and see how I like it.

quite a while. the longest I've left it is a couple months and it was perfectly fine. as long as you have it sealed up good it shouldn't get hard.



my ex-boss loved using satin ice. I didn't like it so much I preferred fondx
