AI have a cake this coming weekend that has a traditional tartan patterned scarf draping from the top. The particular tartan is a dark green with blue, yellow, and orange plaid. I have painted fondant before, but always white. Do you just need to keep going over your color to make it bolder if you are painting on a darker surface? Or would it be easier to tint the fondant a lighter green, and then paint the darker green onto it as well as the plaid? Any advice is appreciated.
That sounds pretty tricky. Â Is cutting stripes of fondant out, and laying it in the plaid pattern on the draping out of the question? Â
AI had thought about it, but I don't think it will look very nice. It is a thin plaid pattern, and that would start to look chunky :-(
Costumeczar wrote a blog post on this, maybe you could try it. I think it would be easier than painting in straight lines!Â acaketorememberva.blogspot.com/â
