Can I use a mixer instead of my hands to incorporate the color into my fondant?

I don't recommend using a mixer to incorporate color into rolled fondant because it is so firm, mixing it would cause a lot of stress on your mixer. Elbow grease and good, old fashioned kneading is the absolute best way to get color into your fondant. It's a lot more work, but it's better than burning out the motor on your mixer!
