I'm not loving the way my stuck on fondant animal print looks on my cakes, its not clean looking. Does anyone have any suggestions for rolling the print into the fondant?

What kind of animal print are you doing?

You can paint them on if you like. What don't you like about them?

I guess I dont like the way it looks because its raised and looks weird to me, maybe its just me. If I was to paint it on what would I use... Sorry Im new to this cake art stuff and I probably sound silly, if you look at my pictures you can see the giraffe cake I just finished and theres something about the pattern that looks bad, I mean other than the dry edges on the fondant, first try at Chocolate MMFicon_wink.gif

You can mix your colors with a little vodka or lemon extract to thin it out. That's what I did when I painted a leopard print on my jungle cake. Maybe try rolling it out a little thinner next time...that might help thumbs_up.gif

let me see if I got it right, you just stuck your fondant on top of your fondant right, that's why it's raised? just roll both of the fondants together. they will smooth out. that's what i did on my zebra, giraffe, and cheetah print in my pics. I was tight on fondant so I just made fondant sleeves around all butter cream cakes to get this look.

Those are both great ideas! I will try them both and see what happens, the cake is for my little gorls first birthday on November 5th icon_wink.gif so I have some time to try out some options!
