Hi can somebody tell me how to do embroidery painting on cakes, i wll appreciate your help.
You basically outline a piping line (section at a time)with a number two or three tube (depending on the effect) and then use a paint brush dampened lightly in water to feather the line in toward the center of the section. hth -cp
Thanks for the info on this subject!
I actually bought a book from wilton that shows how to do it. I attempted it on my mothers day cake and I pulled the color in too far. I also bought icing writers which now I wish I had used my own b/c. The icing writers are too unpredictable
Just make sure when you are feathering the icing (RI works best I think), "drag" your brush from the middle of the piped line inward only so you have an outer edge to it. And, too, don't let your brush be too wet or the icing will smear.
If you work with RI, make sure to pipe a small section then brush it out before moving on so the RI won't dry out before you brush it.
It's time consuming but it looks beautiful when you're finished. It took me about 10 hours to do mine. It also helps to pinprick your design onto the fondant so you know exactly where to pipe.
I love the painted embroidery design in Peggy Porchen (spelled correctly i hope??). I haven't tried it yet, but her instructions are very good. Basically the same as what's been written above
thank you so much to all of you, girls, I really appreciate your help.CC gals are a beautiful bunch.I will try it in a mother's day cake, for my mom.
