I have a cake to make for some "Cheese Specialists" graduating from a corp training program. My idea is to replicate some wheels of cheese which includes labels. Some cheese wheels are covered in a colored wax, red, black, green etc.

My question is "once my fondant is colored, HOW do I "paint" the labels etc? (the colors must be opaque). I've seen it done on Ace of Cakes some time ago but frankly, can't remember how. icon_redface.gif

In the past, I've painted gold fondant pearls using luster dust and alcohol but not sure if the same technique applies.

Thanks! icon_biggrin.gif

yeah it would be the same, i suggest using powdered colors and mixing them with lemon extract (it has the highest alcohol content so it will dry the best) you should be good to go. you may have to do a few coats though. let me know how it turned out. its a super cute idea!
