How do you marble fondant?
Now everybody thinks there is a specific way to do it right or wrong. Honestly, it all depends on the effect you are looking for. You could do ANYTHING and I mean anything to create a different and unique look.
The technique I showing you here is most common used to create such wriggly stripy marbling. The twisting is what give you the curves which work great to make sea effect.
If you want wood grain you would do less twist and fold the fondant logs length ways more than just once or twice. The more you twist, turn and fold the more thinner your pattern will be.
Not sure you can see the board well here but. I’ve done only marbling – Nothing more.
