uk. So now, I'm going to show you how to make pink fondant. The first thing you do is just take a bit of fondant, however much you want to dye pink.

I'm using professional paste colorings to dye this pink because you need a lot less of them than when you would liquid colorings. It's really important that you don't change the consistency of this too much to make it too sticky to work with, which can happen with a liquid coloring. So, if we use a paste, it's much stronger so you need much less of it.

So if I just put a little dot on here of this particular pink. So you don't need very much at all. I'm going to mix this in.

And you can see that tiny little dot has made that sort of baby pink color. If you wanted a darker color, just add a little bit more of the coloring. The other thing to note about pinks in particular is that some of them, the more you add, they get like this particular one.

So you can see the more I've added of this one, it's going sort of a red-y pink color. I've got another type of pink coloring here and if I add more of this particular pink, you'll get a different shade. So basically, different colors do different things.

Some colors, the more you add, the darker they get. And then other colors, the more you add, the brighter they get. So when I add the same amount of this pink coloring, I get a different kind of pink result.

And that is how you make pink fondant. .
