Could someone please give me some advice on how to make fondant look like wood grain. Is it better to colour the fondant a pale brown then paint on a darker brown? Or can you colour fondant 2 different browns and knead them together to get a marble effect?
Any advice would be gratefully received.

Dark brown, light brown and white all in ropes, twist together, roll. you can also buy woodgrain impression mats to roll on top of that.

here's a wood graining tool that works great with some sort of "paint" or chocolate

I made a dress cake and it's stand looks like wood. If you are going to achieve that same look, color your fondant to a light brown and paint it with different shades of brown gel color thinned with vodka or extracts.

Thanks everyone for your advice. I think I'm going to give some of it a go. I'll post a pic when I'm done.
