Love this! Thank you so much for the easy how too! :)
Thank you. Very nice
Thank you very much! Your are so kind for sharing your technique :)
lord thanks I have a leopard print cake coming up in 2weeks and I was worried but I have done this before but my Leopard look more like a Giraffe LOL. I think it was becaue I was over thinking it.
Very nicely explained, thank you :)
You can also do it on a buttercream cake too as long as it is solid. I did a leopard print on one and made sure the BC was very cold first. Also just painted the Franciscan Apple design on a BC cake recently. It's quite fun to do!
Beautiful cake! I am making a leopard print cake next week for my birthday. Can you tell me what base color of fondant that you started with? Is it ivory? The cake with the roses looks ivory as a base, but the other with the ivory flower looks like it might have been darker? Thanks!
It really depends on the look you're going for. I just used chocolate brown and a little yellow gel color to tint my white fondant to match the party decor for each cake. Just start with a small amount and add more as needed. Thanks!
I am doing a leopard print for the first time next month...I will most definitely be revisiting this...THANKS!!! :D
Thanks for sharing your easy method of the leopard print. This will be added to my favorites!!!
that is an awesome tutorial. thanks for sharing :)
Thanks for sharing! Can I ask how you got the nice ivory for the ivory rose?? thanks!
This is a great tutorial. I am going to make a pink cake with leopard print ribbon n bow and had no idea how to make it. I guess i have to make a smaller pattern. Is there any special tip for doing this technique one smaller areas like bows? Thanks,
@res3boys: If I'm starting with white fondant, I usually add just a little dab of chocolate brown and yellow to get ivory. Use a toothpick and just dot it on so you don't get it too dark.
@verosuperstar: You may have to use a smaller brush but the same technique would apply to smaller areas.
Thank you so very much. I am new to rolled fondant work but have baked specialty cakes for over 1/2 a century. I have asked many for suggestions on acheiving their results but you are the first that has revealed their techniques. May god ever bless you with success for your consideration.
@Hurricane7: You're so welcome! Fondant is definitely tricky but it does get easier. Just keep practicing! God bless!
