A few questions here with needed advice. This cake has to be done on the 21st for a lil girls birthday. It's only going to be three small tiers.

1) When do you think I can start making the fondant waves?
2) How do you think the color on the waves is applied?

They look airbrushed to me but you could probably paint them if you don't have an airbrush.

Yeah looks like airbrush on fondant, then the "sea foam" might be royal icing or BC?

You could also probably sponge the color on there.

I would think the waves could be done at any time and dried ahead of time.

The waves are probably either airbrushed (carefully) or are dabbed on with petal/food color powder. This is all done before those little pieces are attached (decorations). I'd make a 50/50 mix of GP and fondant, or even maybe just straight GP. They'll need to be pretty dry before putting the RI on, and you'll probably want to tamp them down with a wet paintbrush to get soft peaks and whatnot. Pretty design, and a lot of work.

Thanks everyone for the responses.

What do you mean by 50/50. Would you knead the GP and Fondant together before forming, is that how you would do this?
