How do I achieve a sheet metal look like this?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I love, love, love the metallic look on this cake? How can I do that? Is it just scraps of fondant that have been painted with something? I would love to do a look like this for a cake I'm going to start on tomorrow. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks in advance!

It does look like patched fondant, and I would guess airbrushed with silver. You could probably get away with painting it silver instead.

That's a cool looking cake too btw!

I love it! I d say make a dark grey fondant. Cut the pieces and make the dents, then cover your cake completely w each piece. When u re done, spray all of it w silver edible spray( I got mine from michaels) then let it dry. When it s dry, I d lightly airbrush it with a grey one or two shades darker than the silver or dust it lightly w a slightly darker grey dust around the edges.
