I have been asked to do a leopard print cake for a lady at my doctor's office. Instead of the black and brown colors though, she wants the print to be done in light and hot pinks.
I am assuming that I will need to hand paint the spots onto fondant. Is that true? Can I somehow do this print on buttercream??
How do I paint them on? Do I dilute my pink gel colors or use them straight out of the bottle?
Never painted on fondant, so any tips would be appreciated.
Anyone know how to paint on fondant??
Dilute with vodka or other clear alcohol/extract. it helps it to dry faster so your fondant doesn't get all sticky.
Here's another thread about painting on fondant. Hope it helps.
I'll check it out.
THANKS so much!
I just use color gels and everclear. It paints nicely and dries up great!!
Type leopard print into the search tool on this site and you'll find several images to review as well as a list of forms where this subject was discussed. Several ideas on how to apply the pattern.
