Q&A with LamourCakes

Pilar VC asked:
They are amazing! How did you achieve the leather look on the brown part and the cracked leather look on the white part? Congratulations!
LamourCakes answered:
hi sorry for the late reply, only just saw your post. thank you so much for the comments. I was pretty happy with the outcome :) Answer to your questions: I used the leaf tool to make the impressions in the "leather" and just used different powdered colours to get more depth in the brown and the shoe laces are just made out of modelling chocolate/fondant mix put through a clay extruder. If you can learn to make modelling chocolate it will become your best friend cause you can mix it will gumpaste or fondant and it gives you more working time and it blends really well :)
