It looks like something shredded or pipped? could it be fondant or gum paste? rice paper? It doesnt look piped on, loosely wrapped. the bride doesnt know where the picture came from and she loves the cake. I'm thinking maybe Sugarveil?

I totally think it looks piped on. Maybe with a number 4 or 5 round tip.

I'd guess piped on too.

It could be piped. I think that it looks like fondant that was pressed into a mold of some rolled out over crinkled wax paper

Looks piped on but I am thinking you could achieve the same look using a painting faux finish technique...

if its iced in buttercream, just after is has slightly crusted wrap it up in wrinkled plastic wrap...then pull off...

I have never tried this on a cake...just a thought though icon_smile.gif

bripastryguy, I love that cake! It's sooo cool! icon_cool.gif I couldn't really tell what technique they used either because it is hard to see. I decided to get a magnifying glass and look at it through that. That helped a little. icon_confused.gif I'm guessing that they used a 4 or 5 round tip also but after that I think they may have smoothed it a bit with something like wax paper or typing paper or a viva paper towel. Thats my best guess so far. detective.gif It makes me want to jump up and go try it on a cake dummy.

could it be fondant using a clay extruder and then wrapping it round and round? it looks so beautiful!

I agree, it looks like it is piped or they attached fondant strings using an extruder.

Hey Brian--I'm used to seeing you on egullet. Hope all is well and the businesses are thriving.

The end of that thread has a potential idea on this design element. At least that's what I thought of when I read "new technique" not sure it is indeed what was used there but it is the newest to me. I haven't tried it yet.

Take Care!!

she has no idea where the picture is from, i'm going to try running a 50/50 mix of gum paste and fondant through the fine spagetti cutter on my pasta machine.
