Very dry fondant

What brand of fondant is the best to use? I’ve been using the kind hobby lobby sells which is from sunny side up bakery and it is drying out and cracking before I can even cover my cake within a few minutes! Maybe it’s old? What is the best kind?

Birch Wood on buttercream?

How can I do this cake in buttercream? How do you get the brown lines/design in there? I’ve never done this kinda thing on buttercream before. Is it paint or do you smear it in while you’re icing the cake or something else?

I’m very glad I fell in your midst. I am new, my name is Dimitrina-Dietan. My cakes became a hobby accidentally after the disappointment of my daughter’s wedding cake. I started almost 9 years ago, and every year I start to burn more and more.
