Anyone have some tips on how to do brush embroidery? I tried it once and gave up but I really want to do a cake design that would look best done in embroidery.
Why did you gave up?? what did it look like??
Personnally I think thin icing (try to mix with piping gel) and a clean damp brush helps a lot...
When I did my mother's day display cake I had hard time with it, but I ajusted my icing consistency and got better result with more water on my brush...
The result here
Hope it helps you
Wow guys! Those are some truly beautiful cakes. Now I'm really inspired to try this again. I think I must have done two things wrong. I know I was working with too large of an area at a time and my icing was drying out. But looking at your cakes, I think I was using to fine of a line and didn't have enough icing to spread.
Thanks for the pics and help!
I think it's called natural talent! An 'experiment' for you turns into a stunning work of art! Congratulations, and it really is gorgeous!
I can only dream--------
Can I ask if you draw on the cake first, or is it all freehand design??? Thats the problem i am having. My flowers do not look cnsistent and uniform, and the shapes are not right.
It really all depends what I am working on, whether I do freehand or draw on the cake. If I draw on the cake, I tend to use a pin to etch the design or make a paper template and trace that. I think with this cake I just winged it....
If anyone has questions, I'm happy to try and help! You can e-mail me, too
