AHi everyone hope ur all well. Can you tell me is it possible to get a suede affect on fondant if so how do I go about getting it? Any help would be much appreciated . I want to do my husbands favourite basketball shoe for his birthday but it is mostly suede and leather. I would love to be able to get it identical.

AI haven't done it but I've seen airbrushing with chocolate looks like suede. Post your shoe when you're done!

AI don't have an airbrush system unfortunately maybe someone has done it another way.

I think a colored cocoa butter spray might give you that affect.

I've found whilst spraying edible gold spray onto a cake, that if you spray it across the surface (instead of vertically down onto it) that it will build up little layers that make a suede-like effect, so if you can find/make the right colour and put it into a spray can/bottle, give it a try. Good luck with it and let us know how you get on! :)
