I want to make a cake with cheetah print on fondant. I am not sure how to do it. I found some cakes on here with cheetah print and they look amazing! Does anyone have any links/videos or their own ways they do cheetah print? It can be out off edible paint, fondant, gum paste etc. I just want to cover my cake and put it on the fondant.

Why don't you pm one of the bakers on here? They'll be glad to help you. I've done leopard print, but not cheetah print although I think they're pretty much the same thing.

I think the main difference is the background color and the size of the spots. I just paint a brown splotch and then outline it in black. Don't be too exact with the outline because you want the brown to show. Or use whatever colors you want to make it.

Duff has some cake tattoos you could use. But I made mine by just painting on the fondant with airbrush paint and a foodsafe paintbrush. It's not too hard, but takes alittle practice.
