well, new to me at least.
while chatting w/ the decorator she was icing a cake with a Curious George theme.
she need to make the top look variegated (streaky) in blue and white.
the customer had requested the whipped icing and she did not have an air brush.
her solution which worked surprisingly well:
take small offset spatula.
warm it up in hot water and leave wet.
put a dollop of blue gel coloring on near tip.
light streak across the cake at several points leaving a deep blue trail.
keep streaking back and forth randomly picking up and laying down color each time in different areas until desired effect is achieved.
That's new to me also. Great tip.
Thanks for sharing, Doug!
its a great technique, especially since we arent allowed to use airbrush machines at sams
Pretty darn clever!
Thanks for sharing, Doug.
