AHey yall! I have a spongebob cake to make for the weekend that has a ton of colors on it. A friend suggested I make the shapes and then paint them instead of trying to make so many different color pieces of fondant and gumpaste. I played around with a piece of coral and a jelly fish but it doesn't look so great lol has anyone tried this method?[IMG]http://cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/3239842/width/200/height/400[/IMG]
Yeah, stick to making colored fondant for now. I have quite a bit of experience painting fondant, and unless the design called for a painted look for the whole cake, I wouldn't mix effects like that.
