I'm making my friend's wedding cake. I showed her some pics and she loved this one, but I'm not sure how to achieve it. Any guidance would be appreciated.
Looks like Betty Crocker-style "waves" with a butter knife. Before you did decorated cakes, you didn't do the typical homemaker's wavy canned frosting decorating?
I find it easier to use the back of a small dessert spoon lightly over the icing. Give it a try. Just spread some icing over anything and pull a teaspoon up.
Agreed, I'd use the back of a spoon. You might do it the same way as the hot knife method -- dip the spoon in hot water, dry off and drag the back of the hot spoon in the pattern you want on the cake -- that way you won't have sticking and clumping to worry about.
Yep, a teaspoon is the way to go. I did this one that way
it could be done with a spatula or the back of a spoon.
Thanks for the responses. That seems easy enough for even me to do .
