My new favorite technique - Hand Painted Fondant

I have always been afraid of food color gel.
In the beginning it would get everywhere and stain my hands , my clothes, my kitchen...everything!
I decided to make peace with it finally and learn to paint on my fondant cakes.
I was inspired to give it a try thanks to Craftsy who is offering a FREE online mini class on painted cakes.
I can't go wrong with free and online, so I gave it a try.
I put newspapers down, put on my gloves, an old t-shirt,  I was prepared for disaster.
I ended up thrilled!
I used vodka to thin my colors and I did invest in a very good fine paint brush.
I will be using this technique a lot. I would say it's my favorite right now.
Even if I don't paint the entire design, I plan on painting some of the  accents like grass, maybe a small flower, outline fondant accents.
I highly recommend checking out the online tutorial on Craftsy.
It's fabulous and FREE !
