Step-by-Step Tutorial: How to Make Skin Tone Fondant using Tasteful Cakes Academy Gel Colour

1- Prepare Your Fondant

Start with a base of white fondant that will serve as your canvas for the skin tone fondant colors.

2- Add the Paste colour

Introduce a small amount of the skin tone paste color to your fondant. The beauty of this product lies in its versatility – a little goes a long way!

3- Mix Thoroughly

Knead the fondant until the color is evenly distributed. For lighter skin tones fondant, begin with a minuscule amount of paste colour; it’s easier to add more than to correct an overly dark shade.

4- Adjust as Needed

For darker skin tones, gradually increase the amount of paste.

Tips for Achieving Perfect Skin Tone Fondant Shades Every Time

  • When working with fondant and icing, remember that all paste dries darker. This tip is crucial for creating fondant figures with accurate skin tones. Here’s how to get it right:
  • For Lighter Skin Tones; Choose a shade lighter than your target. As the paste dries, it will darken slightly to the perfect tone.
  • For Darker Skin Tones: Whether you’re aiming for tanned, brown, or black skin tones, start 1-2 shades lighter than the final desired color. This ensures the drying process won’t leave you with a tone darker than intended.
