*Fondant dries out really quickly - keep it in an airtight container or ziplock bag in between use and work really quickly.
The night before decorating the cake color the fondant with the gel colors as follows: 8 oz (240 g)pink, 4 oz (120 g) violet, 4 oz l(120 g) light blue, 4 oz (120 g)light green and 4 oz (120 g) light yellow, the remaining 20 oz (580 grams)should remain plain white.
To color fondant knead until soft and then add the gel food color a drop at a time kneading well until the desired color is achieved. Store in an airtight container until ready to use.
