Alrighty ... I keep seeing all of these amazing pictures of fondant cakes but the fondant has a "marble" look to it? How do you get this affect? I would like to make a birthday cake with a pink "marble" looking fondant.. if anyone has any suggestions please let me know
Thanks in advance!
Add some pink color to the fondant that you want to marblize but just don't knead the color all the way through and you should have the look you want
Take 2 colors of fondant (pink and white). After you've kneaded each one separately, roll some white into a log and roll some pink into a log. The intertwine them and start rolling with your rolling pin. You can keep doing this until you get the desired effect. Hope this helps.
Here is a great video on marbling.
Thanks so much! I will try it as soon as i get home!!
(i am so glad i found this website everyone is so helpful)
I don't know if this is what you're looking for, but if you look in my photos at the laptop cake...
I got this effect by taking a white 'log', 2 electric purple logs, and 2 electric blue logs. The white log was thickest in diameter. I placed the purple ones on opposite side of the white one, and the blue ones on the opposite-opposite sides (if that makes sense). Then I rolled the whoe thing into a single melded log. I lep folding it back on itself and doing it over and over. I also twisted it and rolled it back to the log. They key was to keep it going the same direction the entire time.
Once the colors looked good, I took the log, layed it on the counter, and twirled it into a pinwheel, or jellyroll, circle. I rolled it out at that point and it looked great. The top of my cake has a swirll and the side looks like waves.
i just start with white fondant, put on some colour, and start mixing, and stop when it looks good.
marbling is quite easy the key is don't over knead
