Step 2

Place the logs side by side and twist. Fold the log in half and twist again until the pieces begin to come together. Repeat the twisting and folding process 2-3 times, but do not overwork, or else the colors will begin to blend too much. Finish up by forming the kneaded fondant into a ball.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I needed this for my daughters third birthday cake in august and practised over the weekend, when making cupcakes. The blue and white turns out fantastic, so will go well on her Finding Nemo themed cake! I dusted my hands with icing sugar when they got sticky, so it was very easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I think that the idea of Marbleizing Fondant was easy to do. It gives multiple shades in your fondant without the off taste that can occur when using food coloring. I suggest it as a quick and easy way to color your fondant, especially when you are looking to have varying shades at one time. If the fondant gets sticky while kneeding it you can add a little bit of shortening or confectioners sugar to take away the tackiness. Be sure to kneed and pull enough to color all of the fondant but don't over do it and loose the Marbleizing effect. I would not wear rubber gloves when using this method because the fondant tends to stick to the gloves. This makes it very difficult to mix the colors and maintain the smoothness we like from fondant.
