Hi everyone!Â I'm very new at this.Â I am taking the wilton courses and have been doing pretty good at the whole cake thing.Â I want to make a sock moneky cake for my sons first birthday in August.Â I know it's early, but i need to practice first to decide if i am actually going to do this, lol.Â I was wondering how do you get the argyle look on the fondant?Â Â I found some images online, but not sureÂ if i am allowedÂ to upload here to show you all what i am talking about.Â But how would iÂ get the argyle look to my fondant likeÂ that?Â Seriously, I need like step by step instructions.Â Can someone please help?!?!?Â
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.Â I mean on a tier.Â 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.
