Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have only done this one time, I have not mastered the whole fondant world yet...still working on that one, might even take a class. But the time I did color the fondant it was very simple, just adding the wilton color with a toothpick and then kneading it like bread dough until you get the desired color. I made a hot pink and black polka dotted flip flop for a bday cake. I have also used the precolored fondant in several shades to make a cowboy boot, that was also quite simple, when I work with the fondant I generally wear plastic gloves one: I have 3 kids and you never know when they may need me, and two: so that the coloring doesn't stain my hands.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love "Marbleizing Fondant". I have used this technique in so many of my fondant projects. To keep my hands clean from the icing color, I use ziplock bags. I have used this for multi-color leaves, whether it is a green spring theme. Or an autumn theme with yellow and orange hues. Flowers take on a whole new look. Always start with a very small amount of the icing color. You can always add more. If you do use too much color, just add more of your white starter fondant and continue to mix. Let your imagination run wild.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I used this method a couple of times mostly to mimic the look of flames on a cake by combining red & yellow together. Gives it a really cool looking effect :) The key is not to knead the colors too much into each other. You want to knead it just enough so when you roll out the fondant it will still look marbleized.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this. It's fun and you always come up with something a little different each time. Make sure you don't over knead the two colors or the will just mix together and you wn't get the marbaled effect you want. I have done this with more than two colors and loved the effect I got. It's really fun and looks great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is such a fun technique to use. As a few people said, it's really nice that you don't have to mix in the color all the way. The only trick is to not kneed it too much, otherwise the marble disappears and just looks like lazy color mixing. Looks great as cake board covering or even covering the cake itself.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I've gotten good results from this after trying it a few times. If you are rolling out your fondant (to cover a cake or something), stop mixing BEFORE you reach the optimum mixed-ness. When you roll it out, it will "mix" a little more and will look slightly less marbleized than it did when you were kneading it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I've used marbelized fondant on two guitar cakes I've made. It comes out really cute. You can add a third color to give it a wood grain effect. I use gel color when I'm marbelizing and it gets a little messy when you're kneading unless you wear gloves but it's worth the mess. Enjoy!
