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...
