I've been asked to do a TR jean cake. (a squared version w/ back pockets). My issue is coloring the fondant. Should I start w/ white and airbrush w/ a blue or color the fondant light blue and dust w/ a darker color? Also i am not clear on how to achieve the stitching color. I know to use the stitching wheel but how do I achieve a white or tan stitching?? please help--- I will l be so appreciative of any help as I have 8 days until i make this cake!

My choice would be light blue dusted. Just be sure to let the airburshed color dry before adding the dusting.
The only suggestion for the stitching I have would be to pipe it w/tip 1 or 2.

Cake Boss did an episode with a denim baby shower cake. Season 4 episode 4. Do a search on Youtube for Cake Boss S04E4, you might find some useful tips there.
