I'm going to make my very first cake with fondant for my daughter's birthday in a few weeks, and will be practicing between now and then! I am going with a dalmatian theme, and wonder if there is a trick for creating the dalmatian 'spots'. In other words, I don't want them perfectly round. Any ideas? I boought a small round cookie cutter to start with.I guess I can just squeeze it various ways as I'm cutting the spots out?

I painted cow spots on a cake, and was able to 'draw' the shape I wanted.

You can always just cut them out of fondant with an exacto knife as well. So you don't have to do them in the round round shape. Or if you do want to use a cutter, you can lightly pull and tug it of the perfect round shape.

I did a small cake with a couple of dalmations and fire hydrant for my Grandsons. I just modeled the dogs out of white fondant and painted on the black spots with some black gel color diluted with a little everclear.
