I was wondering if I could use a sponge to paint fondant and give it a kind of textured look? Kind of like when you paint a wall? Have any of you ever done this and if so, do you have pictures? I can see it in my head, but I don't have any fondant to try it on at the moment.

Yes, I have sponge apinted on fondant....And it works great. Just dont use water to thin the gep paste color. Use vodka or something high alcohol content. Water will stay sticky a long time.....

Alcohol dries very quickly

Hope this helps you

I've done the sponge technique with royal icing on the fondant. It works great.
You can see it in my pics - the white cross cake with a bow.

I didn't even think about doing it with royal, but the idea of a raised texture is appealing to me too. I'm thinking of doing a cake for my niece in a pale lavendar and that kind of speckled look would be neat over it in a darker shade of purple. Thanks!

I have used dust colours mixed with alcohol, then painted and sponged onto fondant that has had time to dry properly - it looks lovely and is really subtle.
