Q&A with DeannaSB

CakeChik89 asked:
How do you get that specific camo look? If it's sugar sheets, where do you get them? I have been asked to make this exact cake two times now but the only sugar sheets I can find are either the strips that go around the side or rounds that lay on top. I can't seem to find any that cover the entire cake. If this is not done with sugar sheets, could you share how you get that look? It's great! Thanks!

this is a painting technique. i use gel inks "watered down" using vodka (or lemon extract). i use brown, light & dark green and yellow. (air brush edible inks could be used as well). Be sure to use rubber gloves - its messy!! use waded up paper towels, dip sparingly into ink & dab onto fondant. work ALL around the cake to get a more even look. i like to cover my tiers separate then stack when dry. for the embossed look. mark up the fondant prior to painting. try not getting the ink down into the embossed design so that it shows white. practice first on a scrap piece. you're welcome to email me on Facebook. hope i helped...Deanna Briggs
