Fondant Rainbow

Fondant Rainbow

Use a primary color set of fondant to create a rainbow cake topper

fondant color mixing guide
1. Create rainbow colors (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple) by mixing primary colors in a 3:1 ratio. Keep fondant covered while not using, so it doesn't dry out.

2. On a clean surface, roll 1/4 of each color into long, even ropes. Line the colors up in rainbow order.

3. Dab a slightly damp finger or paint brush on the ropes to glue them together (don't use too much water, or the fondant will adhere to the work surface).

5. Use a knife to trim the edges in an even layer. (Cover scraps immediately so they can be re-used.)

6. Transfer to a piece of parchment paper or wire rack until firm - at least an hour, but ideally overnight.
