Hi everyone! I'm very new at this. I am taking the wilton courses and have been doing pretty good at the whole cake thing. I want to make a sock moneky cake for my sons first birthday in August. I know it's early, but i need to practice first to decide if i am actually going to do this, lol. I was wondering how do you get the argyle look on the fondant? I found some images online, but not sure if i am allowed to upload here to show you all what i am talking about. But how would i get the argyle look to my fondant like that? Seriously, I need like step by step instructions. Can someone please help?!?!?
ADo you mean an argyle sweater on the sick monkey? Or so you mean argyle on a tier? A photo would be helpful or a link to a photo of what you mean.
Sorry. I mean on a tier. Like the one on this cake.
AJust cover the cake in the base colour. Cut out squares/diamonds in the second and third colour, stick them on. Then use an edible pen or paintbrush and edible paint (gel colour + vodka) and paint the little lies on.
I did this by cutting out green diamonds and attaching to the side of the cake, then with black royal icing, I piped the same sized diamonds but 'off set' to the green ones.
