  • Satin Ice fondant - white and red

  • Make up brush
  • Sponge
  • Luster dust - jade green, camel dust, black, red, brown

Let's Get Started:

  • Cover your cakes with red and white fondant.

  • Use two stencils of your choice to create an elegant effect in paint on the cake.

  • Apply jade green dust with a sponge - very lightly. While doing so, support the stencil with some tape or an extra set of hands to help. 

  • To create the old/antique finished effect, apply camel dust with a make up brush and black dust to the bottom tier.
