My scroll technique... stinks! Does anyone have a word document or PDF of some pretty scrolls that I can practice? I'll happily sit with a bag of frosting and practice doing scrollwork for hours, but my practicing freehand just isn't working!

The Wilton website has patterns from all the old pattern books. Many of them are scrolls.
Just click say, the 1977 pattern book; then search; and they all pop up!

Cool! Thanks 7yyrt for the link!

I've been searching google and not finding anything. I know a lady who was taking a cake class and she had sheets of a bunch of different papers to practice scrolls........... I'm hoping to find something like this too! icon_smile.gif

Seems like I have seen some in the templates section in the gallery. I'll try and find some.

Are you using and imprinter on the cake? And then just tracing over the imprint with icing?

Those are great! THANK YOU!!!

I have the imprinters... and they work good, but I would like to learn to do them freehand.....

You are welcome! I need to do the same thing! My friends daughter asked me to do her wedding cake and she wanted scrolls all over it!! I almost cried!! lol But it ended up ok. Not beautiful or great but not awful either. Guess I need to practice practice!!
