I love scroll work and was wondering how it is done!!! Are are they getting the pattern on the cake to do this?? Is it stamped on, pattern stencil, etc. I would love to know!!!!

Here is a cake by FatandHappy that I am using an example!!!!

I just checked out the cake (really nice!!) and I read this in the comments:

FatAndHappy says:
Yes it is the Wilton Press set, we turned it different ways until we found a pattern we liked. The bow is the fake/premade one by Wilton, our fondant bow fell apart at the show when there was a leak in the ceiling. My partner went to Walmart and got the Wilton one. It didn't color like they said it would, so as a last resort we spray painted it with some paint left over in my basement, just regular spray paint. The dummy cake is covered in regular fondant and the bown is actual chocolate icing.

HTH

Cheers!

Oh that's a great idea. I am doing scroll work for a cake this weekend and I couldn't figure out how they did the scrolls. I will roll out the playdough and play with my scrollsicon_smile.gif
