[postimage id="3732" thumb="900"]I'm just wondering how would you decorate a cake like this. Do you just paint on top of the fondant? Can you gals help me with a basic step by step please! Thanks you!!! :)
It looks like paint on top of the fondant with more paint sponged on there with a paper towel, based on that pattern on the side. I'd at least use a paper towel that didn't have a texture to it, or kleenex or something...
yes and i've cut foam to impress patterns onto fondant and to dip in paint -- so there's that too -- part of the paint there looks like a pattern -- y'know like you'd cut a pattern on a potato to make a stamp -- i'm sure potato stamps is googleable
and it is
I'd say get some of those painters sponges (the cheap ones that come on a stick) and use those. You can mix gel food coloring with some vodka and stamp it on, just make sure the "paint" is the right consistency, you don't want it running off the cake.
There are a few Youtube videos on how to do this look. And if the paint does run some you just put another coat/color over it, What an interesting way to decorate......probably quick and very nice looking.
