Can anyone tell me the easiest way to pipe scrolls? I have a wedding cake that has scrolls close to bottom boarder. Does anyone have a template or any tips that will help me?

I want to bump this thread 'cause I was wondering the same thing. I see all these folks doing marvelous free hand scroll work, and it just escapes me!

The mats look good. Wilton has impression mats too-are you piping on fondant or BC? I have found the Wilton scroll set with the cookie cutter-like scrolls best for piping on BC. You just lightly press in and the impression is sharp and clear. You can then just pipe away! Good Luck!

You can draw the scroll on paper then place a piece of wax paper over it and practice. This way you get used to the hand motion. I also have the plastic wilton scoll thingys that you make an impression on the cake then pipe over the lines. The last cake I did (white one with pink orchids in my pics) I did free hand and it was pretty simple

I just bought some of the clear "stamps" at Michaels -they are flexible and will be able to make the curve around the cake. (I think Norm Davis is teaching a class using those at ICES this year too.) I am gonna try them out here soon.

I agree with grama_j - I bought some scroll impression mats from this seller on ebay and they are great!!

Good luck!
