Is there anyone that knows where to get this print? Or do you think it was hand cut.

I have searched hell and high water for the pattern and have no luck.

It says the pattern cake from Wall paper inc, but couldnt find it.

I think this is it - it even says on there - featured in a cake magazine.

Hope that helps!!

Get some blank stencils and cut the pattern out and use that to put the pattern on the cake (cover cake in fondant, hold stencil against cake, smear royal icing or buttercream over stencil, smooth, gently pull stencil off).

someone please correct me if i'm wrong - that is just how I have done stenciling in the past.

You could also use the pattern to cut out pieces of fondant to put on the cake...

So, just order the wall paper and cut it out?

I thought of that, i was going to cut it out of fondant. See, it is going on cheesecake, and cheesecake is different than bakery cake, it has a tendancy to sweat a little.

Well, I ordered the wall paper. It just looks a little time consuming and tedeaous to cut out that pattern! Whaooooooo.........

My other suggestion and probably the easiest way to do it would be to use Sugarveil (www.sugarveil.com) - order their starter kit which is onsale right now. Tape down the pattern, cover with wax paper, crisco the wax paper and pipe the design. With sugarveil you can just lift and stick and I think it would work great on cheesecake!

- please let me know how you ended up doing this - that pattern is beautiful!!

The thing is, I cant pipe it, with cheeecake and the black icing, it will run when it sweats.

my best bet is the fondant cut out, man that is going to take a lot of time

its an icing mix, but its flexible as it dries. its really cool stuff!

Look at the gallery and you can see all of the stuff that they have done with it. Basically you can do the piping off the cake and then literally pick it up with your fingers and place it on the cake and it wrap it around the cake because its flexible.

I have used it on several cakes in my gallery - kharsten (writing), Mickey Cookies (writing), Mickey cake (all of mickey was outlined in sugarveil and then I picked it up and placed it on the cake and filled it in with regular icing). I really really really really really love it!! (you do NOT need the air pen!) i would definately recommend the DVD and the comb - so your best bet is the starter kit.

black fondant will sweat more than the sugarveil.

Does it dry smooth? so, can you color the mix and it will still dry?

yep! it dries thin too, so its not really bulky and you don't have to worry about weight - its like paper light.

sugarveil should put me on the payroll! haha - I really do love the stuff, it make the hard complicated things easy and fast.

The only thing that I had problems with was getting the consitence right the first 2 times I made the icing - just stick with it and watch the video, watch the video and watch the video!!

I too love Sugarveil. There is a black and white cake in my photos that was done with Sugarveil on buttercream. I actually piped mine on plain wax paper and let it dry a few days. I painted mine with some Americolor black get and a paintbrush. It came out great. I have mixed a couple batches out of my bag and still have at least half left. I really need to do something else with that soon. I tend to forget about it as a medium! Good luck!

Have you seen the video where they comb the sugarveil through the stencil and then put it randomly on the cake! That is the coolest technique!!

Okay, janelwaters & tnt320to you've totally sold me on the SugarVeil. I'm thinking I can do whatever it is that they do with their little machine with an extra small squeeze bottle...we'll soon find out. I got the starter kit & can't wait to get it! I'm pretty psyched about making realistic looking bows too & using my craft punches...OMG! My head is reeling with ideas already, I'm so excited!! Did I say that already? LOL! Thanks ladies, you've made my day icon_biggrin.gif

YEA!!! It is so much fun to work with - I watched my video like 4 times in a row and then I have gone back over the last year + and watched it at least another dozen times.

JUST THE COOLEST STUFF!

I just use my regular piping bags and tips. All I bought was the confectionary mix itself!

I am all about spreading the wealth!! I think that not only should I get some kind of referral fee in the form of free product, I think they should send out a free sample to try!

Marketing Marketing Marketing!!!!

Seriously the stuff is awesome!

I wish they would offer a class or something to go over EVERYTHING that you can do with it!

Who do I need to contact about this!?!?!?!?!?! haha

Oh, I am SOOOOOO ordering this stuff! Not only does it look like a dream to work with, BUT, I found a template a few months ago, downloaded it, and lost it. icon_sad.gif Couldn't find it anywhere, forgot to bookmark it, gone forever...and I tried to find it for weeks!

Turns out, the sugarveil website is where it was! Wow!

I JUST ORDERED MY SUGARVEIL STARTER KIT!! Yay!!

Hmmm....guess I won't watch the front porch for any packages THIS week.... icon_confused.gif

On another note, in another thread about "cracking the sugarveil recipe" someone mentioned that they won a kit from Sugarveil, but NOT the $150 gun, but they found the gun at Michael's for 15$...huh??
