Well first off I'd like to say I'm new to the fondant/gum paste/cake/frosting world. But I'm loving every messy, sticky, cake falling apart house smelling like burnt vanilla bit of it! Oh and by the way...where was this site 6 months ago!?!..or where was I???? Oh thats right, paying way too much for an Angry Birds cake. :(
Second, I'm trying to make a snowy owl and I want to "stain" the white fondant a brown/black color but I'm not to sure how or where to begin. And people I've asked look at me like I'm insane. I"m not sure how to decribe it but here is a picture similar to what I'm trying to do, expect instead of the turtle it's a snowy owl and instead of the forehead it'll be his belly and top of head.
Thanks so much to all who try to help me out. Hopefully I'm not a lost cause. :))
