Hi lisakay--the only instructions I could tell you is that I sculpt freehand and roll out the candyclay like fondant and drape it over the cake. Then proceed like you were working with fondant.


Oh, I also thinned down brown icing color with vodka and used it like paint. And as also a little luster dust goes a long way. :D


The best thing I can tell you it is to carve the cake when it is frozen or slightly thawed. You can cut into the cake and get better detail when it is frozen. I always try to have the object that I am trying to duplicate right in front of me to refer to as much as possible. I hope that helps. :)
