A friend of mine has asked me to make her wedding cake. It is similar to the first cake pictured in the link I am posting.
My question is, how do you think they did the scroll work on this cake? It doesn't appear to be piped on. Do you think it was painted on, and if so, how would you go about painting like that on fondant? TIA
I use americolor gels straight up, for painting. You can also thin out paste colors with a bit of alcohol and paint with those.
stencil, would be my bet.
It might be painted on, but it could also be a transfer sheet.
the lines don't look uniform enough to be a transfer or stencil. i agree that i is painted on-i've painted on cookies with the wilton pastes and they turned out great- just use a fine brush and maybe practice with acryllic paints and paper first until you get the look you want (it opened up a whole new way for me) hope that helps love that cake too by the way
Mix the gel color with a bit of vodka to make the paint. Without the alcohol, the gel color takes forever to dry.
