How to color Red Fondant/Gumpaste

How to Color Red Fondant or Gumpaste

This tutorial is for those beginners who never have colored fondant 
or gumpaste. I have gotten many emails from beginners wondering why their
 fondant/gumpaste is not reaching the desired color. In this tutorial, I explain 
how to color white gumpaste in a deep shade of red. But keep in mind that this 
works with any dark color you need.

No matter if you are using fondant or gumpaste, you
can follow the same steps. If your fondant gets too 
soft, you can always let it rest for a few days. 
If you need it in a hurry, I sometimes add more 
sugar and at times I have added some Tylose 
to it. It's a matter a preference.
I used Chefmaster color because their pigment is very strong. I love Americolor 
too, but I have find out through experience, that Chefmaster red can get to a 
deeper red. Never be scared of adding color to your fondant and keep in mind,
 fondant and gumpaste  are dry, get to be a bit lighter in color.
