I've been dying to do leopard print on fondant, and I know it looks very random, but random can be hard to do. I'd like it to look pretty realistic. Anyone have tips, advice, or know of a tutorial? Thanks a bunch, caker buddies!

I don't know that there's any advice other than get your paintbrush out and have at it! I'd get a picture of a leopard print off of google images and just use it as a reference, then dab the food coloring on instead of painting it in long strokes, know what I mean? Maybe I'll do a tutorial on it, come to think of it.

I'm so sorry. Didn't realise that. You can register for free, if you want.

There are so many different versions of it, when I done it, I found a picture of one I like and dabbed on, like the first poster mentioned. Colour is key for me, and then you just have to decide how big or small to make the spots.
