What is the best way to do ferns on a cake. I have a Bride who showed me a picture with fern and accorns on it. (not too pretty) What is the technique if I use butter cream? Is there another way?
Bet she got that picture from the Martha Stewart Wedding book.
I would experiment with brush embroidery. It can be done on buttercream.
There is a very small leaf tip used for that but I don't remember the # of it and I'm at work so I can't look.
Thanks. She got the idea from a wedding mag. I have the MS book. Will have to look and see if its the same picture. Ive never done brush embroidery. Is it easy?
Brush embroidery is not difficult. You may want to practice a little. I think it gives a very elegant look to cakes.
Basicly you outline your pattern, then with a damp brush "pull" the outline in. You need to be careful not to disturb the outside of the outline.
I've done ferns a couple of times with a #1 tip. Lots of little lines, but it looks pretty.
do you have pics?
never mind I found them on the web. Your cakes are beautiful.
hi..i remember seeing a 'fern' cake..will look for u.
Thank you. The cake that the lady wants is a martha stewart.
I did the gumpaste ferns from MS book by Wendy Kromer but I didn't add the RI leaves. It was pretty easy.
there's a fern cake pic i would like to show, but how do i attach pic under my post? im not a comp wizard, so, pls, make it simple and easy. thnk u.
To attach a picture to a reply, all you do is type in whatever your reply is. Then scroll down to where it says add attachment, click there. All you do from there is type in where your pictures are saved (mine is my pictures) click on the one you want to attach then click open. (If the picture is too large it will prompt you to resize it.) If it's not too large it should upload it to your post.
If you need resizing instructions let me know.
Hope this helps.
ok..that sounds easy..will try out. thnk u.
Thank you, If she goes with me I will post picture.
