Leopard Cupcake Icing Tutorial - Melissa My Cake School. 2 icing; 3 icing; painting on fondant with mixture of vodka/ colored food gel. Basically she lays down lightest icing, adds darker color and accents with black (not all the way around the design). When the icing has just crusted, she smooths with a paper towel. What a beautiful Decorating Tip!!!! Great Site!
