How do I get that fuzzy fleece look on a Christmas stocking?

I'm guessing some sort of sponging technique would need to be employed.

Maybe those Wilton cake sparkles? Other than sponging...

What about using some cotton candy?

This is the best fleece look I have ever seen. In the comments, she said she put it on one piece at a time.

There was a stocking cookie done either last year or the year before (don't ask me by who though) and for the white fleece on top she took fondant and a wire brush of sorts and dabbed the brush on the fondant, creating a fabric effect. It was gorgeous.

I did the Wilton sparkles on a bunny and it was ok. The pic posted with the snowman cake was fabulous! I would probably pass out if I tried to put those on 1 at a time though. I think the wire brush like that was mentioned above, would work well. that's easy enough to test out though! Good luck girl!

I would put the RI on, let it dry slightly and then take a stippling brush to it at a 90 degree angle.

oops, sorry, forgot to add that I saw this done at Rollingpin productions (something like that) and it was for dog fur but looked awesome.

What about the technique that Duff used on the trees he made for the Harry Potter cake? He took RI and dried it, then he ground it up (sorry I can't remember exactly how he did that part) Maybe he grated it on a microplane? You could email and ask if they would tell you. I think that look would work for what you want.

Didn't he spread the RI out on a slab, let it dry then dragged a bench scraper across it ? Kind of like making chocolate curls (but it ends up much finer since it's RI)?? I THINK that's the way he did it. Don't quote me though cause it's been a while since I saw that episode. I could be making the whole thing up! LOL!! icon_wink.gif

I think you are right - I remember them using a tool to do it, but I couldn't remember what tool! (bench scraper!) I know it looked more like "flocking" to me than it did a tree!

What is this Duff technique? I'm trying to visualize it.

They just put RI on a flat surface and let it dry. Then they took a bench scraper and "scraped" across it - which made dry RI "crumbles" (for lack of a better word) then they pressed that into some wet icing on a sugar cone to make it look like "flocking" on the trees. (which I think piped leaves would have looked better - this looked kind of like velvet covered trees to me)

hi, i recently read in one of my books that you can use normal dishwashing scourers to get the fleece look. you can experiment with different scourers to get the look you want -
i tried a few scourers on some fondant just to experiment and it does work. good luck, sulia

I recently made a "terry cloth towel" and I used a firm toothbrush and pounced it up on and down to make the texture--it worked really well
