There was a cake in the June 2010 issue of cake central magazine that was made by " with love & confection" that was tiered and had a vase as a topper with peonies in it. The cake looked like old stone with cracks and shading on it. Does anyone have any idea on how to acheive this look. Thanks
Can you post a picture?
I tried but couldn't get it to load. It is on their website under wedding cakes .
It looks either airbrushed, or dry brushed. For the cracks, I would cut little uneven lines in the fondant (once applied to the cake), and carefully pull it over to cover the cut you made and manipulate it to make it look like a crack. I've actually done something like this (on accident) when smoothing my fondant and accidentally dug my smoothing tool into the fondant and tried to "patch" it.
Looking at the picture further, I think it was dry brushed.
thanks,I thought so too
