Has anyone ever attempted this? There are instructions in the Whimsical Bakehouse book...I'm just so intimidated to be piping a continuous horizontal line!! I'm trying incorporate something Scottish into a golf-themed cake, and this is all I could come up with...anyone else have ideas??
You can handpaint plaid onto fondant...I have a few cakes I did that on.
You could probably pipe a plaid pattern similar to basketweave though...doing it a section at a time.
If your cake is fondant, you can use a stencil.
thanks guys...it will be on BC...the instructions in the book like kind of like basketweave but it still looks like the horizontal lines are continuous....?
designer stencils and culinary stencils have a gingham plaid two piece stencil set you might want to invest in.
Thank you - those stencils look cool, but I only have a week so I wouldn't have time to order them. anyone else have any advice for piping plaid on the sides of a BC cake?
Can you take a clean plastic ruler and imprint the lines you want then trace them?
Is it a round or square cake? How about plaid chocolate transfers on the sides?
it's a round cake...hmmm....chocolate transfers?? wondering how I could do that??
Chocolate transfers won't work on a buttercream cake. If it were fondant you could iron it with a craft iron.
