Hi,

I have a woodgrain impression mat and dark chocolate fondant - do you have any ideas how to make the woodgrain stand out? I was thinking of brushing a beige luster dust over fondant to see if it would make the wood grain stand out. What do you think?

Would airbrushing a light brown/tan work??

I would start with lighter fondant and dust in a darker color. Here's a picture of a little piece of a floor I made for a cake topper using the impression mat on fondant:

I did these with gum paste and painted the wood grain with color paste diluted with a dab of lemon extract. I was soo much easier than I thought it would be!
