A detailed tutorial teaching how to paint  fondant with edible paints on cakes, cookies, & cupcakes

Painting on fondant gives an extra dimension

This is a continuation to learning how to hand paint on fondant. In the first tutorial, hand painting roses I showed you the one stroke  technique of multi-loading a brush to achieve highlights, shadows and color changes in one stroke! The same method can me applied to leaves, berries, filler flowers, even fruits, and vegetables.

I hope you have fun with this technique for painting on fondant; once you conquer this method there will be no limits  to the beautiful creations you attribute to your cakes, cookies, and cupcakes.
