Q&A with heidi jan

MissHolly asked:
Nice! I love your wood graining too. Can you share how you did that?
heidi jan answered:
I made 1/2 lb of dark chocolate colored fondant and 1/2 lb of milk chocolate colored fondant. I rolled them both out to about 3/16" thick. Then stacked them. I then cut the stacked sheets in half and stacked the 2 halfs on top of each other. I continued to do this untill my stack was about 6" x 4". Then I cut about 1" thick strips off the long end, turned the strips to the side so you can see all the layers facing up. i fold some strips to make "knots" and smushed the stripd all together. I then carefully rolled out the fondant and watched my wood grain apear. Let me know if you have motre questions! I can take pics to show you!
