Q&A with Georgia's cakes Bega

Garden Baker asked:
Wow! I realize that it's a year and a half since you posted this , but could you explain a bit how you did the wood grain on the box?
Georgia's cakes Bega answered:
the bottom is real cake covered in fondant, but the lid is poly styrene on a cake board and then covered in fondant. I let them dry for at least a day or 2 first, them i streaked them with dark brown first, let it dry then air brushed and all over lighter brown to give a even coat.the mixed 3 shades of browns and hand brushed the whole thing is streaks to give the effect.when it was dry i sprayed it with glaze to give it a lacquered look, the embossed corners where a rubber stamp i cut out by hand and made look like leather.
Garden Baker asked:
