Next, color the fondant. Do NOT forget to wear gloves. That's important...unless you would like to add color to your body. I used Ameri-Gel Super Black. Many times for cookie icing I start with a brown and add black.Because adding a lot of black usually makes a bitter icing...almost medicine tasting. But this time I just went straight to the black and a relatively small amount made a beautiful dark color today.
The first key was made and smoothed and left on the rack to dry a bit. Isn't it cute?
Now, I admit I had to measure to find the ratio of the key widths. It was almost 2:1
Who knew...butter, sugar, cake and math!
I am always amazed that so much math can be involved !!!
