My question involves stenciling on fondant.
I have a precut stencil but I'm not sure how to go about it. Do I set the stencil up against the side of the cake, and then paint the remaining area?
I need silver for one layer and black for the other one. So does that come in edible paint? Or should i try to find a marker? Not sure on what to do.
Oh, and should the fondant be dry before I work on the stencils?
Wow! No help at all? Even the tiniest bit of advice would certainly be appreciated!

You can definitely stencil just like you said. I prefer to use buttercream to stencil with, but I think I just mix my paint to thin. Get some silver luster dust and mix with a bit of vodka for paint, or just brush in on dry, depending on how thick a coating you want. I've had good luck brushing dry luster dust on stencils. For the black, I'd just mix a tad bit of vodka with your black paste color and paint with that. Good luck!
Thank you so much! i will check it out! i tend to chicken out alot!!!
