Hi there. Does anyone have any ideas on how I would accomplish this checkered pattern? What I'm wanting to do is cover cupcakes with this picnic tablecloth pattern. Thanks!
It looks to me like she just had a large square of white fondant and added smaller red squares to get the checkered look. You could do the same only very small. You could also do like I have seen people do with clay. Make 5 red square logs and 4 white square logs. Place together a red log, white log, and another red log next to each other. On top, place a white log, red log, white log. The top layer would be a red log, white log, red log. Push them together so that they stick. You may need to paint a little vodka or vanilla to get them to stick. Place in frig to get cold and then slice to get your checkered blanket. You could probably find something on youtube to show you with a video. HTH!!
I like Sucrea's idea about the log...otherwise you could make one big white fondant sheet and cut out a bunch of red squares, lay them out in the checkerboard pattern (attach with a little water) and then maybe use a round cutter (like 4 inches or however big your cuppies are) that would fit your cuppies well to lay on top of them. Post pics when you're done!
Thanks to both of you!
