I am making a cake coming up and had a horrible time creating a light grey fondant. I have tried several ways and it comes out purple everytime! This past weekend i used a 1/4 package of wilton fondant (the smaller package) and a pinch of black fondant..maybe a dime sized and it came out a very light grey at first but then turned to a light shade of purple/violet color.
Whats the best way to achieve grey? Ive read everywhere about americolor black with satin ice fondant, which i have the fondant but am afriad to waste anymore fondant. I do not have an airbrush machine so thats out. I read on satin ice's website to get grey it says 1 black and 4 white. Is that 1 part black to 4 parts white?
