I've been asked to make a Leopard Print Graduation cake. I've never done the leopard print, but was wondering if I should make them out of bc or fondant? The cake will be iced with buttercream. What colors would ya'll suggest. Brown/Black and Tan are what I'm thinking. Anyone out there have suggestions or ideas?
All would be greatly appreciated.
I used a tan, orange/tan, brown, and balck and piped bc with star tip. took forever but looked great.
I do leopard print all the time...i use the airbrush...
base the cake in a golden yellow....shade the edges in brown....then do the spots in brownish black...then i put a clear glitter over it to really make it pop.
use a light hand...it really looks cool.
Thanks for the info.
I've done this a few times on buttercream. I ice the cake, smooth it, and then "paint" on the pattern, using a light hand, very soft paintbrush and a mixture of black petal dust mixed with lemon extract. Then I use a mixture of gold luster dust and lemon extract for the accents. I got a leopard print stencil at a craft store the first time I did this, but have done it freehand ever since.
