Marbled fondant

You can achieve this marbled look very quickly and easily!



INSTRUCTIONS:
In order to marble the fondant, you need 2 colors to mix. I started with this pink and added the blue to it for my marble on this cake.
Start by getting the fondant very pliable.
Then I roll out strips, generally the same length, but not precisely.
Twist them together and stretch, repeating a few times, but not too many!
Lay out the fondant for rolling.
Roll the fondant out, careful not to stretch it too much, you don't want to have to knead again, or you will lose the marbling.
If you don't have 2 colors, you can add colors this way. Add a dab of your usual cake colors in several places, folding as you go.
Knead and twist as I showed with the 2 color option.
Again, not too much, or you will lose your marbled look.
Roll out and place on cake.
This is an easy way to add a different look, a little fun with an otherwise simple, elegant design.
I forgot to take a picture of this blue cake, but I've included a picture of another marbled cake I did.
