What you will need:
Small paint brush
NERF logo print-out
Grey lead pencil
Cooking oil spray
Edible Art Paint in Sailor Blue
Step 1: Print and cut out your NERF logo.
Step 2: Roll out some white fondant.
Step 3: Place logo on the fondant, face up, and cut around the outside with a small knife.
Step 4: Flip the logo upside down, and using cooking spray, spray to make it see-through.
Step 5: Trace over with baking paper and a non-toxic grey lead pencil.
Step 6: Flip the baking paper over, face up, and place onto fondant. Rub over the lines with a pencil which will transfer onto the fondant. This will leave you the outline of the NERF logo to follow.
Step 7: Using Edible Art Paint in Sailor Blue, take a small paintbrush and trace/paint in the blue logo space.
Step 8: Tap the paintbrush over the fondant logo to make splatters!
Step 9: Place the logo on the cake with buttercream!
