Hi all,

I am forever using this fab forum for top tips etc but I have a challenge that I can't see has been asked before...

I need to make a cake similar to the one in the link below but want to cover the cake in fondant rather than buttercream so it's more study for travelling. Does anyone have any tips for getting this effect? It's sort of 'vein' like?

Thank you in advance for any help :)

i would smear it with royal icing -- let it set up a minute and rub it again to get the texture -- going in the different directions to create the sections -- and then dust it to color it -- geez that's a gorgeous cake -- and that log slice -- the bottom tier -- that can't be real if it's sitting on a pedestal cake stand -- those things weigh a ton -- all that mossy stuff is beautiful but it makes me nervous so near the food but all the better to use fondant but can't help but think what all's living/crawling around in there -- hahahaha

That's a good idea I didn't think of royal icing :) thank you!

Haha I did think that about the moss but luckily this cake will only be a display cake for an 'enchanted forest' wedding photoshoot!!

thanks for your help, I really appreciate it :)
