This tutorial shows you how to get the hand-painted leopard print look as seen here and in my cake photos. I’m sure I’m not the first or the only one to do it this way, but after being asked by several people for tips I decided to put my method in writing. Feel free to credit or link to any other tutorials on this subject. This technique begins with a fondant covered cake. I first brush the cake with vodka to get rid of any excess cornstarch and to ensure a smooth and flawle...

INGREDIENTS: 1 16 oz bag mini marshmallows 2 tblsp chocolate syrup…. like Hershey’s, or whatever brand you like 2 tblsp corn syrup…. dark or light, doesn’t matter 1-2 tblsp flavor...

You will also notice I use the word ‘awesome’ alot. I’m dead easy to get on with (unless you are very serious and have an answer for everything ;) lol) laid back, loyal, always have something going on (much to the annoyance of my stressed out other half) a little ditsy, under-confid...
