A friend wants me to make a sheet cake in the form of a brick wall and grafitt writing on it. What is the best way to get the brick look? And to get the brick color too?

If you have time to order one, a brick impression mat is the best way to do what you're thinking of. I think I would do it with white fondant and then paint the bricks so that the white lines in between looked like mortar.

If you dont have time to get an impression mat you could just score the lines with the back of a knife. I would also use white and then colour

I dont have an impression mat. Cake is due Wed. I did buy a blank stencil, maybe I can make my own. What about tape? What about placing tape down then airbrush it and peel it off? I am just thinking out loud...clueless.

I have seen brich type impression molds in Michael's in the clay section. Maybe that might work.
