Hey CC'ers!

How would I go about making a denim effect on fondant? I want my layers to look like denim. Not just a blue color, but to look like denim. Any suggestions?

thanks!

I have a blue jean cake (weird story behind it) in my pix...I think I started with a light blue color and then sponge painted dark blue on it....and then of course yellow stitching....

I can't pull up the link because now my computer is flashing the red malware page again for this site...sigh...but its I guess maybe 3-5 pages in.

I did exactly the same thing as Kitagrl on the Levi's cookies I did last summer!

I found the round (about the size of a quarter in diameter) stenciling sponge brushes at the craft store, and blotted first on a paper towel, then onto the fondant. It's a great effect that everyone thought was spot on!

Good luck to you! Look forward to seeing your denim cake project, Doughnut[/img]

my apologies, I'm not very good at adding pics into posts. But the cookie is in my album here.

Happy Baking to you icon_smile.gif

Dayti, thanks for posting that! Sometimes my browser is okay with me on here and other times it seems to find malware. I dunno...hope its fixed soon! I know my computer is clean so hopefully CC can get rid of any buggies it has.

Good luck with the jeans!
