i came across Jusmin Rae amaizing cakes. Does any one know how does she get the cracked finish of the fondant? And the old stone look effect?
Do you have a like to that site so we can see what is refered to here?
I pulled up her cakes on Google and I haven't a clue how she achieved what she called a crackle effect. It may possibly be done with wafer paper, but I couldn't see well enough to determine.
To me i it looks like gumpaste on fondant. The she applied color dust to give it some effect. Check for Angela Morrison Crackled effect tutorial in youtube ;)
I have used Angela Morrison technique several times and it gives a nice, weathered wood sort of effect (that is what I was thinking of when I referenced wafer paper) but Jasmin's cakes don't look anything like that to me. They almost look like she used royal icing like plaster on a wall.
I went back and stared some more and a lot of her textures are created with very thin sheets of gum paste and others with wafer paper. I am loving her work!!!
