I wanna make the below cake. I have never done this kinda of piping before I I might do some things in fondant. I guess its called lambeth piping?
Does anyone know a good book that shows how to do this? Even wilton? Something? If you have pictures that would be great (i am a visual learner )
I emailed the creator of this cake but didn't see any posts and thought someone might know whats going on
Cake by Gefion
The Well Decorated Cake by Toba Garrett has info on this...don't have it in front of me, but what I see in the picture is in her book.
Unfortunately Toba Garrets book does not have info on the techniques I used on this cake - she writes something about lambeth, but the shown techniques in the book are not so lambeth-y that I would go purchase the book for the sake of learning it.
Take a look at these:
Hope it will help you.
Lambeth method cake decorating book:
Lambeth, as you can see in the pic you posted, is a lot of piping, string work, and overpiping. I suggest getting a cake dummy and practice your piping skills on it.
Just gotta say - gorgeous cake!
The lady that did the first cake posted in this thread, her name is sif. Here's her website: http://www.gefjonsdottir.com/ She has a gallery full of Lambeth-style cakes and a number of tutorials on how to do this technique as well. Hope that helps some!
