I mixed whole mixture of color pastes I had to make black, like purple, blue and green!
Mixed it with some vodka and rolled out a spare bit of fondant and tried it out on it first.
I made some home-made stampers in varying 'c' shapes out of styrofoam - a bit like potato printing!
And it turned out brill. I then painted on the yellow paint and then brushed each yellow dot with gold glitter.
Only downside to using vodka that I found, was that even after 24hrs it was still wet! And we could taste the vodka!
I'm making another leopard print cake for monday - but im going to use lemon juice instead.

I imagine you could use lemon juice, but the sticky factor is something to take into consideration when painting on fondant. But I am sure it can be done...carefully!
I'm making my leopard print cake again on sunday for collection monday pm.
And i'm not keen on the vodka taste - as kids are going to be eating it too!
shall I buy some rejuvinating spirit? or just buy some lemon extract whilst Im in the supermarket later on?
Unsure about the lemon juice now - dont want it to be sticky!
Not sure what rejuvinating spirit is, but if it's tasteless that should work. Can you get clear vanilla?
