AI've searched the Internet and can't find any tutorials on how to get the aged or dirty look like this cake... this will be my first attempt at fondant (not replicating this cake exactly). [IMG]http://cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/3267918/width/200/height/400[/IMG]
AVery easily. Dry brush food color powder on in areas in whatever color you need, brown, grey, black, whatever. Or wipe thinned down color, like gels watered down with a bit of vodka, with a paper towel. I add aging effects to a lot of my designs.

'cuz you know everything!!!
AThank you!! I'm going to first experiment with the baseballs themselves, made rice crispy balls, going to cover in molding chocolate and then fondant, similar to the picture. Any tips or good suggestions for the stitching are appreciated! [IMG]http://cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/3267926/width/200/height/400[/IMG]
I love making baseballs, and for me, there is no quick solution. I snip tiny little pieces of extruded fondant, and poke them into the ball just like real stitching would look like, Takes forever, but the effect is worth it.
Well pooh, guess this is the only example I have. I have improved this vastly since I did this a few years back.
You can also use cocoa powder to "age" your design...
AI ran out of brown powder quite a while ago and use cocoa powder now.
A(Wonders if that little pot of brown powder [I]was[/I] cocoa powder.)
I also agree with using cocoa powder. That is what I used to get the aged look on the baseball cake that I posted in my photos. I used a dry bush to apply it! Good Luck!
