It is very pretty, but i need to know how to put a pattern on a cake , so that it is repitious and that each of them match and are exactly the same, any ideas. The cake is all white bc and the pattern(scroll) has to be black, and i just dont know if i can do this. I need some help PLEASE!!! Thanks For your time!

The only way that I can tell you to do is pretty tedious. Print the design on computer paper. And then take a pin and punch through the paper into the cake, with the pin. It will leave little pin marks all over the cake. Then you can pipe and follow the pattern. Hope this helps.

P.S. You can make as may pin holes as you want. So you can make lots and put them close together, or you can space them out so that it won't take as long to do. Just do what's best for you!

Wilton also has a scroll pattern press set that you imprint with then go over it with BC or royal.
