Hi there, I wonder anyone could give me some pointers please on how to make a wedding cake design work.

The bride sent this picture (attached pic) to me - she wants her cake to look like this. The detail on the sides of the cake looked like piping to me at first, but I am not so sure anymore. Please help. How would you do this?

Thank you very much.

It seems piped to me.

It looks like that person has used a silicon mold to do the pattern. icon_smile.gif

Thanks for the replies guys.

I admit, it would be a lot easier if it was a silicon mold rather than piping. Where would I find the mold though? Has anyone seen anything like this?

I do similar designs frequently. Pipe the stems then use a leaf cutter and then a veiner to make the leaves. Easy.

Check the Silicon and Recin molds section.

Bashini, grama_j: Thanks a lot. I have tried Global Sugar Art, but they don't seem to have what I'm looking for.

Leahs: Fantastic idea - I'll do a practice run and see how I go.

Thanks again all!

Use any cutters to achieve your own design... Here is one I did so you get the idea... http://www.cakecentral.com/cake-photo_1290089.html

Leah, you are a genius. I love that you share all the time and are SO SMART! Every time I read one of your posts, I am like... "DUH, how could I have not been doing it that way!!!"

Thanks for your help all the time.
