I think some of you go to cakewrecks, if not the address is
anyhoo, there are a couple cakes on there today that are van gogh impressionist cakes and they are so cool! I would love to know how those were done. Maybe the decorator is on here??? If so, WOW.
What would be a good way to go about decorating like that?
practice, practice, practice
Yes, I need lots of that. What I wondered was if you would pipe it all, use brushes...crustless buttercream...would you crumb coat first...those sort of things. Pardon my cake naiveness, I'm new.
If I were going to do it, I'd pipe it all. I can't imagine how to do it otherwise.
Yes, I'd ice the cake/cupcakes smooth, to create a surface to work on, like a blank canvas. Then I'd sketch the design using a toothpick, to help keep me within boundaries. Since it would be a copy of a scene, it would be a lot easier and more forgiving than a portrait, for example. And it would not need to be perfect, as long as it's somewhat close, people would know what it is.
