Carma’s Massa Ticino Tropic - fondant - Page 3

post #31 of 54
hey guys,... I am still new to the cake world:) I used this fondant and just loved everything about it, the texture, the taste and how not so sweet it tastes. But have been having trouble adding colors to it. The black turned out green and the violet blue. Any ideas why??!

I was having the same problem with coloring the MCTT, my all time favorite fondant. I don't know if it is true or not but I was told the bright white fondants have an additive in them that affects adding color. I was told to add a little ivory coloring first. I have NOT tried this so I don't know if it is true.I do know if your colors are old they will not turn out as good.Would like to know what the real pro's have to say.

I color my CMTT all the time and have never had any problems at all with it. (I use americolors and wilton)

 

Could it been the coloring you used?

I am no pro, but I have colored my CMTT with no problems using Americolor. As for Nancy: If you check out the Craftsy course on painting your cakes, Erin talks about colors and how you sometimes need to mix in different ones. I believe she covers the issue you had about the black looking green. Check it out, it may help!

Do any one know which site can ship internationally the Carma Massa Ticino Tropic?  I am from Middle East and used to buy it locally but they don't sell now :(

 

Can anyone help in this please.

Try looking at Albert Uster Company. I think they are international.

Ok.. so now I'm confused.. I have received an email from Albert Uster advertising Massa fondant with Nicholas Lodge.  Which massa is this?

Albert Uster sells a Massa fondant but it is not the one the one we've been talking about. If you go to fondant source dot com you will see it on there. The company that makes it is called Carma.

I used to use Massa Ticino...but hard to find with an extended shelf life. BUT Albert Uster formulated one close to the Massa Ticino...they call it Massa Grishuna Neutral....it is very similar and outstanding product.  Much better in my opinion to the Fondarific and 300% better than all the other varieties. Hope this helps!

Hello, 

 

Do the Albert Ulster Import Fondants work as well as Massa's tropical in the heat and humidity!?

I want to place an order for one of these, and want to get a few extra tie-bits of info first :-)

 

thanks everyone!!
