Hi, I'm Christie Vega-Gluch from Phoenix Cake Company, and I am going to show you how to make a fondant scarf. Now you can't wear this, but you can eat it. It's much more impressive. So depending on the design, what color you want, I started with a orange fondant. Going to do kind of a Halloween looking scarf. You can use any color you want. So you want to actually roll this out on the thinner side. I am going to add a little texture to this. I'm using a textured rolling pin. You can get these in specialty cake decorating shops. You can get them online. So once this is rolled out, you want to make sure that you have enough of your powdered sugar down so this doesn't stick. So these are a little bit tricky to use. You're going to put a little bit of pressure. You don't want to get too much pressure. Basically, just getting the impression of these on here. You kind of have to stop and roll this two or three times. It's hard to do this with one complete roll. Once the texture is on the fondant, you're going to cut two clean edges. You're going to cut two clean edges off the side. This is a gold luster dust. You're going to dry brush this on. Tap off the excess. And when you dry brush this on, this is actually going to make the texture design pop out even more. OK so you're going to get your luster dust. Get that all dusted up and that really made it pop out. That just looks so pretty. And those two colors together are really nice. OK so once the gold dust is on, I get a little spatula here. These are going to be the end pieces of the scarf. It's just like a little indent. You're just marking this, you don't want to cut all the way through. Then you're going to get a little scissors are better than big scissors for precision. And I'm just cutting a little fringe on the end. You're going to do that to both sides. OK so once that's cut. This is a cake that we had covered in fondant. And depending on where you're going to drape this top part we're going to put it right here on the top. If you want to drape it on the side. Little bit more water there. I always like to add a little movement to it instead of it being plastered on to the cake. It gives it a more realistic look. Add just a few little folds in there, and there is a beautiful fondant scarf. I'm Christie Vega-Gluch from Phoenix Cake Company.
