Covering a cake in argyle fondant.

Thread Starter 

Hi everyone!  I'm very new at this.  I am taking the wilton courses and have been doing pretty good at the whole cake thing.  I want to make a sock moneky cake for my sons first birthday in August.  I know it's early, but i need to practice first to decide if i am actually going to do this, lol.  I was wondering how do you get the argyle look on the fondant?  I found some images online, but not sure if i am allowed to upload here to show you all what i am talking about.  But how would i get the argyle look to my fondant like that?  Seriously, I need like step by step instructions.  Can someone please help?!?!?

Do you mean an argyle sweater on the sick monkey? Or so you mean argyle on a tier? A photo would be helpful or a link to a photo of what you mean.

It's never "just cake!"

 

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!

Just cover the cake in the base colour. Cut out squares/diamonds in the second and third colour, stick them on. Then use an edible pen or paintbrush and edible paint (gel colour + vodka) and paint the little lies on.

I did this by cutting out green diamonds and attaching to the side of the cake, then with black royal icing, I piped the same sized diamonds but 'off set' to the green ones.
