I saw a tip here that was sponging color on a fondant book cake that made it look old and weathered. But I have no idea how to do that. Can someone help?

Thanks, Sheryl

Well I just spongepainted a cork cake (in my photos)...I used a natural sea sponge and dipped it in brown food coloring mixed with vodka and started away. I also had a dish of cocoa and occasionally dipped my sponge lightly in that to give a mottle effect. If you practice on a spare piece of fondant you'll figure it out fast.
