add yellow to it = )

I was making grey fondant one night and I had the same problem...it wasn't until my boyfriend said "add yellow, duh!" and I looked at him like 'WHAT?! how did you know that?!" thumbs_up.gif It works! Just add yellow in small amounts until you get the grey color

I had the same thing happen to me about a month ago, except mine turned blue! The first time I used Wilton fondant and black coloring. After reading a few threads on here I bought some Satin Ice fondant and Americolor black coloring. The second elephant I made turned out great (the first one turned blue the next morning)! I also learned to it sit for a little bit, the color seemed to get a little darker. Hope that helps!!! icon_biggrin.gif
