Today I tried out making a wood effect plank with fondant/sugar-paste. It is actually quite easy and a great idea to put on a large cake, of course you could make mini ones too. I will personalize them by pipping names and messages on them.
To make the brown I used ivory food colour gel with a tiny bit of black or very dark green! I tried other ways but this was a lot easier and I had ivory already.
I did the one on the right first, I can’t decide which I like best! The one on the left looks older I think.
If you have any questions on this the please feel free to ask, The tutorial will be in the tutorial section which is coming soon.
