SUCCESS - I HAVE PURPLE FONDANT!

To the person who suggested mixing pink and blue - thank you! I got a bottle of pink liquid colouring and mixed a little of that and a little liquid blue, and it worked and I can now get the various shades I want. I know you're not meant to use liquid colouring with fondant, but I have found it works fine as long as your not using too much liquid (kneading a little icing sugar in thoroughly can correct any stickiness in my experience). Nonetheless, I also bought red and blue gel colours at the same time, and they definitely get a more intense colour - not needed in this project, but with a little boy who's favourite colour is red, I can see a use further down the line... icon_smile.gif

Again, thanks for all the replies!
