Elaine MacGregor shows how easy it is to create some of the special effects which give the very best iced cakes their professional finish. This video shows the traditional method of ‘Cocoa Painting’; painting a design onto a cake with cocoa.

Is she just painting on fondant? Also, by "fat", does she mean shortening? Thanks in advance!

Hi ginnygrace84

Elaine is painting on a rolled fondant iced plaque. The fat used in this video is trex which is the same as crisco shortening. These are very old videos, since they were filmed, cocoa butter has become widely available and can be used instead for better results. Check out Elaine's other youtube tutorials, she's a great teacher.
