I want to make a cake for Father's day that looks like a steak right off the grill....I picked up so piping gel to use as a glaze to shine it up and hopefully make it look juicy....does anyone know if this will work or how I should apply it to get that effect? Should I tint the gel a bit? Any suggestions are appreciated. Does anyone have any other ideas to get the results I want?
I think I'm going to color the fondant a reddish brown and then paint it, or should I just color the fondant and glaze it? I colored some sugar to look like seasonings, pepper and what not....ahhh! help! icon_smile.gif

Nope, that's from Debbie Does Cakes. She's one of my faves. Seriously, it's my favorite cake in the world.

I know, it is so realistic, right down to the bone marrow and the pepper.
