Anyone have suggestions as to how I can achieve that red brick look?
I'm making a housewarming cake for a neighbor that moved and their new house has a lot of red brick.
I was thinking I'd use marshmallow fondant strips for the siding. Any other ideas
I'd appreciate the advice...Thanks!
I know there's an impressions mat for brick work...if you wanted to go that far.
If you're using buttercream, you can just frost with a red/brown frosting, then pipe on black or white lines to show a brick pattern. I did this on the Mario cake in my pics. If you're looking for something more polished, I'd go with the fondant impression mat.
i have one in my photos.. it is of the ace of cakes ... the building is made of 3 shades of colors.. terracotta... 2 shades of brown.. i worked it into the fondant. until i liked the color.. i used a ruler to make the bricks.. then. i dusted it with several shades of dusting. powder .. i won at a cake show in pineville nc. they were really impressed with my brick look. hth
