fondant not white - May 8th 2014, 02:49 PM

I'm making a cake for my parents wedding anniversary and though of covering it up with fondant. The problem is I want it to be white but I get a yellowish tint. My fondant recipe had liquid glucose, gelatin (which is yellow), glycerin, margarine, vanilla essence and powdered sugar of course. I don't want to buy ready made white ones. I want to make it. Is there any way to make it white? Will adding white color to the gelatin, liquid glucose and margarine help? BTW, I use Americolor.

You could try adding white food coloring or add white icing?

And here you are living, despite it all.

I think it depends on the recipe. For example, the person on this link was using marshmallow fondant, and you have to keep kneading that and let it gradually get more white.
This recipe should get you a white fondant, according to photo.

Or if you want to look here, there are lots of different recipes for fondant there.

When I made a cake with fondant, I just bought it so it was already white. However, there was a bit of jam on the counter that I was using to stick the fondant to the cake and that made a little bit of it go pink. Is it possible that your working surface has something on it that might be staining the fondant and making it go yellow?

I hope at least one of these suggestions helped. Good luck - I hope it works out for you!
