Hello all, new to the site and it looks great. I am planning on trying to make a dinosaur themed cake for my son next week and have found the cake I want to try to make.....yes I said try. I have worked with fondant before, but need to know what the best way to color this cake would be, it seems to have smooth transitions towards the top near the spikes. I am assuming some type of air brush or is there another technique for fading colors in/on fondant? The image can be found here http://www.cakenicing.com/gallery.html it is the green dino cake.
Thanks in advance
I am pretty sure that dinosaur has some airbrushing. I would color the fondant green first and then add your accents. I do not own airbrush equiptment, so I have handpainted details in the past. It will not fade as nicely as that cake though.
I made a dinosaur recently but iced it in buttercream with fondant accents. I am referring you to a photo of the cake I made where you will also find another photo of the cake before I iced it in buttercream. Hopefully, this will give you an idea of the construction of the cake.
