I am asked to do a beer mug (wood grain style) and have no issue with the wood grain effect, but I am covering the cake in peanut butter buttercream, then covering in fondant.
Opinions please.....should I:
1. Cover round tier first, then make the impressions, paint, etc.?
2. Make the impressions, then cover the round tier, then paint, etc.?
3. OR, should I make the impressions, cut out the rectangular pieces of wood grain (fondant) and apply them separately like laying tile?
Thank you all !
i vote #1 and you might want to consider modeling choco or use mc in combination with the fondant -- kneaded together 50/50 or so --
and after it is applied you need to act quickly to get your impressions in before it sets up --
best beer caking to you
Oh, never mixed MC with fondant before......hmmmmm.....will have to research that one to see parts to parts.....certainly would taste great! I normally use bought brand fondant......don't know if I could mix with it....
i mix it with satin ice-- i make my mc though -- it's a nice product
