Cake Decorating Community - Cakes We Bake

I need help with Fondant.  I was coloring fondant yesterday and after getting the color I needed I noticed that while kneading the fondant it looked dry and cracked in some spots.  Is this because of overkneading or could the color do that to the fondant.  I wrapped it up and I am hoping that when I am ready to roll it out to put on the cake it will not be like that,  If it is still looking like that when I'm ready to roll it out does anyone have any suggestions.

 

Is there a certain way or technique to knead fondant?  Please help me as the cake is due this Saturday.  Thanks so much!!!  :)

It must be a cake decorators thing... staying up late. It is only 10 pm here but I am always up till at least midnight. Crazy huh? I work full time at the school and cakes are my summer job and extra job during the school year... I wish I could just do cakes full time but I live in a very small community and I work at the school to support my obsession with cake toys!
I know...It is 1:06am in Florida and I am still up answering customer e-mail. Have 11 more e-mails to go before we get some more tomorrow. My main complaint...every morning I feel bad I have had to leave an e-mail unanswered as not everybody goes what you are going through. Have a great evening!!!

Thank you so much for your response Jeri. I have electric green and I thought about it but didn't use it thinking it might be too bright. I found a "bitter green" gel color I had and it got pretty close to lime green.
