I wasn't really sure where to put this. I found this amazing artist and I think that her ideas would be great for scroll work. You can find her on flickr at
I used one of her designs for this cake
Thanks for posting that. I have been looking for some examples of scrolls. THANKS!! THANKS!!
isn't she awesome!!! I love the peacock. I keep looking for an excuse to use it.
Thanks for posting this! Those are some gorgeous ideas. If I ever get past the "Very, very beginner" stage, I''ll try some of those designs.
I've only done cakes for about 8 months now. You'd be surprised at how quick this was to pick up. I printed her art out in black in white put it under that plastic yellow practicy thingy you get for your icing and traced it with icing about 10 times then did it on the cake.
Beautiful designs. Thank you for sharing the site with us. I see quite a few I would love to try.
Thanks for sharing good idea.
I am venturing into the 'scroll work' territory this week... I have no orders for this weekend so i am going to make a cake and just decorate it with all the things I have been wanting to try, so now if I screw it up I can just eat it and try again

Isn't that the best ? Mistakes that don't have to be thrown out and taste great to boot.
Welcome to CC!
You've got some great looking cakes!
I find scroll work with color on color a good way to cover up my inability to smooth out icing.
