Tinting your own fondant ensures that your decorated cake will be the colour of your choice. Hot pink is a deep and dramatic colour that will deliver a big wow factor to a decorated cake. To make sure your hot pink fondant is a uniform colour, tint a larger amount of fondant than you estimate you will need. Attempting to match a colour as specific as hot pink would be a challenge and should be avoided.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • 0.454kg. fondant
  • 28.4gr. rose paste food colouring
  • Toothpick
  • Rubber gloves

  1. 1

    Roll the fondant into a ball with your hands.

  2. 2

    Dip the toothpick into the rose paste food colouring. Apply the food colouring to the ball in at least six different spots on each side of the fondant ball.

  3. 3

    Put the rubber gloves on your hands. Knead the colour into the ball by pressing on the ball with the heel of your hand, folding over the fondant and repeating. Add more food colouring if needed to reach the desired hot pink shade.

  4. 4

    Continue kneading for at least five minutes until the hot pink colour tint is evenly distributed throughout the entire ball of fondant.
