How to?

Well, I am unable to load the image but maybe someone can still help. I’ve been asked to do a baseball themed cake, covered with white fondant. Here’s the part I’ve never encountered before: she wants it to look like a dirty baseball. I’m looking for suggestions on how to do that? Again, sorry I am unable to upload the image.

TIA!

You really can have your cake and eat it too!

Just after you cover it in fondant get some petal dusts in brown and black lightly dust the ball with a small fluffy brush… be careful to tap most of the dust off of it first. Then when your done give it a quick steam to set the color a bit…it will darken a bit after steaming. Hope that helps. Good Luck! =)

AnnMarie said it best but if you don’t have any brown petal dust on hand cocoa powder might work too! (and smell lovely!)
