I was at a local supply store and I was talking to the (wonderful) owner. I was asking her pointers for brush embroidery, because I had tried it for the first time, and it looked kinda good, but too crusted. She told me she has never tried it, but she has been told by others to add store-bought (in a can) frosting and just add it to the frosting that you are already using and it will keep it from looking crusty.
Has anyone tried this? I am curious... I haven't gotten a chance yet to try it and I'm wondering how this has worked for any of you.
that's interesting...never heard that. it sounds like it could work!
I tried it in cake class on fondant and it looked great
Thats a good tip...
I just did a brush embroidery for the first time on a dummy and thought it looked too crusty... I'll try this next time.
I've heard mixing with some piping gel helps with this... never tried it though.
