I think if you used a large tip maybe 3-4 and let it sit out for a long time and your fondant was soft you shouldn't have a problem.

Goodluck, if it does work please let us know.

That is such a pretty cake Rocketgirl. I absolutely love the scroll pattern. Can you tell me where you found the image? It is so beautiful.

I can't remember where I finally tracked it down, but if you go to, istockphoto .com and search "scroll shape" and only select illustrations it comes up with quiet a few, just find the one you like icon_smile.gifits okay if its pixalated because you still get the idea icon_smile.gif

That looks fun! I know I will defintitely try this method at some point in my decorating adventures. I am way too picky about the way my hand piping on the sides of cakes looks. I am no ThanThan!

there is another post going on talking about using puffy paint..... supposedly its non-toxic... which i dont know if that means food safe... i think there is a difference...

but something worth trying! might stick to the acrylic better.

Thanks so much for the tips--I learned sooo much from just this one post!! Your cake is awesome--great idea using the frames!!
Gotta ask--what color did you use for the cake?? I didn't realize you could get a shine on buttercream-still learning more!

I am glad I could help out!

Jeannem... I use an airbursh and used Luck's brand gold shimmer. LOTS of it.. icon_smile.gif
I sprayed the gold over white BC. The ivory i sprayed over ivory BC.

Good luck! If you develop this method more please let me know! haven't used it since.. and I know its not the best way.. but at least it works icon_biggrin.gif

This is how I do all of my lettering, except I use plastic/acetate sheets. I bought some plastic folders and cut them up to use for my mats.

Also, I did try this on fondant, but not on a cake. I made a fondant banner that I later attached to a cake. The impression helped me with my lettering. It's in my pix- the cake is Analiese's Blue Farm. (If you look, please try not to notice the horrid rough BC...I do much better now.)
I'm not sure you could apply enough pressure if you are pressing it directly onto a cake.

The stuff you guys come up with is amazing! I love it! I can't wait to try this technique on a cake. With all the knew things I learned I'll never run out of ideas! The cake looks great by the way! icon_biggrin.gif

Rocketgirl, you are the goods! Thanks for the tutorial, and your cake is phenomenal. I'm sitting here drooling as we speak. I can't wait to try this out thumbs_up.gif

Mike McCarey used this technique on his Scooby Doo cake in a Food Network Challenge. They were imprinting a large section of "heiroglyphics" (sp). Unfortunately, I can't find a photo of the cake.

Great minds think alike, RocketGirl!

well it was never MY concept.... i just couldnt find a tutorial. The girl Mary- with red hair--who is on challenge a lot did it on her simpson cake.


I just get happy when I can share something icon_biggrin.gif

I was just about to say that. I went to a cake show and one of the demonstrations was all about buttercream and she had flexable sheets of clear plastic that she piped over with the fabric (or puffy) paint and then let it dry and used that as her stamp. Like you said, I would check out how food safe it was before I tried it, but it worked beautifully. I think the advantages to using the paint would be the durability factor and the fact that it is flexable. Great cake by the way! thumbs_up.gif
