I need to make a flag out of fondant/gumpaste, but don't know how to get the stripes to look good...I don't have an airbrush. Any ideas would be appreciated........thank you
I would just cut them out of fondant or gumpaste.
Personally I made a flag cake for the 4th of July and just used licorice whips for the stripes.
. . . you could just use painter's tape (usually blue in color) . . . mask out the areas that will remain white . . . hand paint the exposed areas . . . remove the painter's tape and voila . . .
Thanks, I will try the painters tape...sounds easy..
. . . let me know how it turns out . . . . . . I look forward to seeing a post of your finished cake . . .
so far so good. I made the flag and its drying now...you can see some of the brush strokes, but all in all I think it looks good...it was easy with the tape. I have a few rollers underneath to make it look like its waving....I'ts about 8 1/2 x 13......I am putting it on a full sheet double layer cake....the cake is for Friday so I will post it either Friday or Saturday....thank you again for your suggession....
I thought about that but wasn't sure how it would turn out....did you move your cake...when I click on your file...it says file not found......
Oh wow that is a nice looking flag.
The pic is there, but there is a weeks-old CC glitch with attached photos, sometimes they show up, sometimes you have to reset the page like 15 times to get 'em to show...keep trying .
yes, that is a beautiful flag....thanks for sharing
Here's my flag....I think it turned out good for my first...
Doglvr, I think your flag looks gorgeous! You did a really good job, congrats!
Thank you Jayde........I appreciate it.
