I'm making a zebra stripe purse for the 7th. What's the best way to do the stripes? (I think it's painting on the fondant. If so, how the heck do I do that?)
Thanks so much.
You can paint them - the are done free-hand. If you feel a little uncertain about painting them without a pattern, just draw them out on cardboard stock and pin-prick or lightly trace the pattern with something sharp. Remove the cardboard and then paint with food coloring.
Your other option is to cut the stripes out of fondant and apply them.
I'd go for the black strips of fondant. Roll it really thin so you get that painted effect.
Yeah I'm with Rylan. Someone was asking a similar question yesterday.
Just roll out some black fondant and just start cutting slight wavy strips. Don't think to hard about, just do it. If you concentrate too hard they won't come out good. I KNOW! I've done it.
Thanks for the advice.
The 'don't think too hard' really got me laughing because that's me in a nutshell.
Hi, hope this helps!
LOL, definitely dont think too hard about it! I did what was SUPPOSED to be zebra stripes on a cake (it's the purple one in my photos) but i was "thinking too hard" about it and all the points were up, none of them down, so it ended up looking more like flames than zebra stripes! lol!
So my advice for zebra stripes: Make sure you alternate which direction the stripes point!
Oooh...LOVE the video!!
