I have a request for a sock monkey cake. They want it to look like a real sock monkey. I have no idea how to make it look like the gray/white fabric. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
I haven't tried it, BUT if it were me I would try pressing woven fabric (maybe interfacing) into the buttercream or fondant. Good luck, can't wait to see the picture of that one!
Wow thats a tough one! Its like a mix of brown and white lines...hmmm...let me think on it but im not sure ill be much help. Im curious to see what other come up with!
Elisa Strauss of Confetti Cakes makes them. Try going to her website and contacting her.
Well I did like tinygoose said and bought a new plastic scouring pad. I pressed it into the fondant. It made a great pattern for the fabric. Then I dry brushed black over the top and it looked great. Now as far as the whole sock monkey goes it wasn't that cute. I think its because I think sock monkeys are ugly. I didn't get a chance to take a pic but I am supposed to get one from the family. I will post later if anyone is interested. Thanks for all the help!
