Anyone have experience?
I'm making a western-themed cake for a neighbour in a couple of weeks. He's a rodeo rider, and I thought a western-style demin shirt, folded like when they come out of the cellophane, would make a great cake.
I'm stuck on how to get the best denim effect and any guidance would be appreciated. I don't have an airbrush, but I'm wondering if using a new wide bristled paintbrush might be more effective (I picked up the Ralph Lauren paint effects booklet to see how you do the effect on walls, just need to transfer it over to fondant now!)
Thanks for any pointers.
Bumping because I would really love some suggestions!
One person i asked about the denim jeans look told me that she used the navy blue gel colour mixed with vodka and painted it on leaving a few white spots. HTH!!
Anyone else have any tips, I need denim for this week-end ?
Well, I did do my cake (the shirt cake in my pics) and it turned out ok. I tinted my fondant all one colour, then used a dry wide pastry brush to brush on darker blue and white strokes horizontally and vertically, to make it look a little worn and old.
Hope that helps!
