I am doing a train cake for my 2 year old grandson next week. I want to do a train station with it but am not sure how to tackle the brick wall look. What is the best way to do a brick wall, BC, fondant, or air brush? How do I do it? TIA
visit the polymer clay aisle and look for a brick texture mat similar to this:
Geoff on Ace of Cakes has used these to do bricks on cakes.
(remember -- you're there for JUST the brick one -- leave the others behind -- for now! )
can also use a ruler and that little rolling wheel for marking fondant (but OY that's going to take time!)
I was hoping you were still on the board, I knew you would be able to help me. Darn I was hoping to look, but if I look I'll buy so I'll stick to only looking for the brick mat... How did you know? Thanks so much Doug!
possibly could make your own brick wall stamp!
(tho' lazy me would just go buy the impression mat!)
Didn't think of doing my own, but then yes... like you, I would just buy one. Thanks for all of the info and links Doug, shopping I will go.
