Painting on black Fondant

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I am a beginner. I have made a handful of cakes for my kids before people started noticing and actually ordering cakes from me. I have a question about painting on black fondant. I for the life of me can't get my fondant to be black black so for the last cake (zebra stripes) I went out and bought the actual Wilton black fondant. I have a ton left over and another cake order. This cake will be completely black with light accents painted on. I need to achieve a blue to white affect on it and was wondering if any of you can tell me the best way to paint a deep blue shading to white on black fondant if it's even possible at all. I don't have much by way of tools since I am just starting and money is tight. The pic is just a quick drawing of what the cake will be. All black and the rim of the large planet as well as the lettering will be the blue going to white. and the small planet will need to be all white with a glowing affect. I hope that makes sense :)

I'm not sure about the blue part...but I've had luck with painting white on black fondant using Wilton White White - I usually use that to make my icing white, but when I needed to paint white on black, it worked like a charm!  Good luck!

A couple layers of white white will work. And then a bit of white white in the dark blue to give it some opacity.

On another note, I don't know where you live, but selling cakes in some states is legal and in others, it's not. Some require nothing, some a certificate and some a full commercial kitchen (like where I live).
