Hi all,

I've seen this picture and I wonder hor to make those stipe effects:

Once, I tried to roll 2 colored fondants together and didn't work. Then I cut stripes from one color and I wet the other fondant a little bit with a brush and put the stripes on it and tried to roll them again, and this didn't work too. Is there any movie or pictured article showing how to do this?
Thanks...

Maybe they're painted? Is that fondant or royal icing?

Hi mamawrobin,

It is fondant.

I don't know icon_confused.gif Maybe painted on? Maybe covered with white fondant and the blue stripes are fondant strips added?

I have done this effect by rolling out white fondant and adding sausages of other colours, with a tiny bit of water to make it stick, then rolling out the whole thing flat. I then used letter cutters for the name.
See my pics: Alex cake, and also the pink and white striped 'Parisian' one.

I agree...the letters really do look like royal...the stripes look like they just blended really nicely.

If it helps in figuring out if it is royal icing or fondant, here is a link to a close-up of a similar cookie that she has on one of her sites:
