I think it looks great. Did you do that with RI? And was it stiff or medium? I tried to do it a couple of weeks ago, and mine wouldn't paint into the center. So mine must have been too stiff. Just wondering. Thanks!!

cylstrial I just used the same buttercream i used on the cake but tinted green. Next time I think i will thin it slightly to get a longer smoother stroke with the paintbrush. It was a soft to medium consistency. HTH icon_smile.gif

I tried to ask this question and my message box got zapped. I thought that you had to use royal icing and I'm glad to be wrong. I'm wanting to try this on flip flops that I am doing later in the week and she only likes buttercream.

Thanks, Chippi. I love your cake! thumbs_up.gif

Your very welcomed mbt,

You can use RI on Fondant cakes for brushed embroidery, RI doesn't like crisco.

Hey, that's really good! I tried to recreate a cake that Serious_cakes did on youtube...... my flowers looked like.... I don't know what! Now that I have some blossom cutters, I've been meaning to try again, I couldn't make a free hand blossom!!

Thanks everyone! I really enjoyed doing this and its a really a quick way of decorating also. Next time I will thin the buttercream a lil more. I bet it looks very pretty on fondant, can't wait to try that. Thanks again ya'll. icon_smile.gif

Very pretty! Gives the shamrocks a different look. You did a great job smoothing the buttercream. I'm still fighting with it.. icon_smile.gif

hey Chippi,

How did you get your BC so smooth? I'm doing wedding cake this weekend and damn if the BC didn't have tons of air bubbles in it. I am having a heck of a time getting it smooth. =(

Hey Girl icon_smile.gif

Mine had some bubbles too but I just kept viva toweling it and used paddles like crazy!

Make sure your buttercream is just right above the beater after its consistency you want and turn it up notch or 2 and let it run for 5 mins. That is what I have found that gives me smoother buttercream. I am still learning also.

Good luck on your cake!
Kathy >Big hug to my friend!
