My sister wants me to make a wedding cake for her & she showed me a picture of the cake. It was covered with chocolate fondant, but it almost looked like suede. Do I have to do anything different to it to make it look that way?

If it looks like suede it may have been brushed with cocoa powder.

interesting, I wouldn't have thought of that. This may be a silly question, how do you brush the cocoa on? I would assume with a pastry brush and just brush a little on at a time???

I would think you'd do it while the fondant was not dry. You'd brush it on with a puffy brush like a blush brush. I made a suede looking chair for a cake topper for my grandpas 93rd birthday and I mixed brown and black together to get a super dark brown that was almost black.

I use a large blush brush and drench it in the cocoa powder, then brush onto the cake in round swirling motions.
