I know the title is striking, and I know you simply clicked it because you thought I was talking about myself, but I assure you I’m not! (This time anyway… I do enough of that over here!)
However what I do want to share with you is a simple, yet beautiful and elegant way that you can bring any cake to life!
Some times our most simple orders can be the most challenging. The customer wants something that has no theme but will be eye catching, and the talk of the party and wants to keep the cost to a minimum.
We wrack our brains trying to come up with ideas so that we don’t end up falling short and providing the client with a drab, mediocre run of the mill, cake.
This easy technique of coloring… or rather marbling, your fondant is sure to have clients and guests, alike, raving about you!
All you need is at least 2 balls of fondant, in your choice of colors (enough that the combined amount will cover your desired cake tier).
*NOTE – you can use as many colors as desired (in fact, it’s a good way to get rid of bits and pieces of left over colors from previous projects).
Kneed each color you will be using separately until workable.
Divide each color into various size balls (if desired).
Roll each ball into a snake-like tube.
Randomly lay your “snakes” side by side and gently rub them until they are flat and about the same thickness.
Twist your fondant together like a “rope” and roll into a uniform “snake”.
Fold the “snake” over onto itself and press together.
Gently pull the snake in the same direction as the last fold, twist and fold.
*NOTE make sure you are always pulling and folding in the same directions.
Repeat the twist and fold steps as many times as desired, but remember you are not trying to blend all these colors together
You are looking to “marble” the colors and have variations of each individual color you are using.
When you have the desired color/effect you want, roll out your piece of fondant to the size you need to cover your cake!
WAIT! Hold that thought just one minute, need an easier way to cover your cake AND get crazy sharp edge?
Check out my step by step paneling guide and video here to see how you can not only give your client an amazing marbled effect, you can also knock their socks off with a perfectly tailored edge!
