I have been making my own gelatin based fondant and mmf. Both recipes turn out great until I want to color them. Any shade darker than a pastel completely (especially red and black) ruins the nice pliable texture it was in the beginning. I have tried adding additional water, glucose, powder sugar and shortening but it all still turns into a cracked mess. Does anybody have any experience or tips on how to get vivid colors with homemade fondant without ruining it? Your tips are much appreciated!
