i have a bride that wants this cake in september. i realize it looks like its probably airbrushed (seeing as i dont have an airbrush machine i have to get creative) i was thinking just getting some color powder and brushing it on with a paintbrush. Do you think that would work? and also she dosent like most fondants. but she loves modeling chocolate. i know it would be more difficult to cover a cake in it but i know its possible. but anyone have any ideas/really good fondant recipes like a white fondant recipe that tastes similar to white modeling chocolate?

i vote for modeling choco because you can cover in the brown then attach the lighter color areas and hide the seams with the warmth of your fingertips
plus the dusting you said--would be perfect i think--and it would handle all the carve-y bark-y places
modeling chocolate is easier than fondant--it does not stretch like fondant but you can manipulate it much more easily
and like i said you can patch where you need to and erase the seams no problemo
yea i know im just starting out and i told her i would try it for her before her wedding and if she dosent like it she has another one lined up for me thats really simple but id really like to nail this one and make her a happy bride. and its for my portfolio so im charging under half of what she would spend, just because im new. i just need to make sure i make what i spend 3 fold and ill be happy.
