I'm making a cake for a little girl who loves Lisa Frank. I don't want to exactly copy one of her designs, but rather use her style as inspiration. I'm going to put some dolphins on it and fish and coral but I have to use the riot of hot, neon colors that are an integral part of her designs. I'm not sure how to combine colors of fondant to cover the cake. Should I paint the fondant? I don't have an airbrush so it would have to be by hand. Would airbrush colors be best to use? If I paint it, should I start with white fondant or a light base color of some kind?
Any ideas for which way to go would be appreciated!
