Hello friends -- I have been looking for the stencil design on the chocolate layers of the attached cake for weeks. I have PM and emailed the designer - but I have not received an answer. I have looked for any stencil design even remotely close - but have not been able to find one. Do you know where I can get it?

I have looked at designer stencils, gsa and others and they have the daisy lattice and the princess lace but neither one of them is it.

Or is it not a stencil at all? Is it some other type of decorating technique?

Any and all help will be apprecited --

Thanks so much!

Pretty sure that is hand piped.

After looking at the photo zoomed in the design on the cream colored tiers looks to be hand piped, but the ones on the tan colored tiers look to be a stencil

For me, it seems to be hand piped. I did zoom the photo but where I could give 100% answer it gets really grainy. Still, hand piped for me...

The chocolate design on the light colored layers is definitely hand piped. I think the decorator used the design in the Wilton Pattern Press Set.

I was afraid I had not made myself clear in my original post -- I'm not concerned with the design on the cream color layer done in chocolate -- I'm trying to figure out how to do the design on the chocolate layers (in cream) that looks like some type of a lattice or quilt style design with the flowers in between. It really looks like a stencil to me - but I haven't been able to find one like it yet.

Thanks for all of your help though -- hopefully the suggestions will keep coming!

I understand, but even the design on chocolate layers seems to be hand piped. Do you have a better photo you could post somewhere or PM?

No - I saw the cake here on CC when it was posted a few months ago. I PM the designer and then emailed his business but never received a response. It may be hand piped - if it is I don't know that I could keep it that even and symetrical . . . unless I could figure out a way to press the design . . . .


I have the set of Ateco diamond cutters - could I use one of the larger diamonds to lightly press guide lines around the tier and to me it looks like a small reverse scroll is used in between the flowers that I could pipe and then either try to pipe a flower or find one to press and then trace/pipe? What do you think?

Thanks,
Susan

For me, it seems not as complicated. I did enlarge the photo again and here is how I would make it and it seems to correspond with what I see.

Find a round, 8 petal cookie cutter. Find a smaller round cutter. You don't need more.

Draw one repeat on paper - see attached file.

The complicated part - count the number of repeats. With toothpick or something similar, mark the center of the flowers. Or do there dot with buttercream/RI. Take the round cutter and 8 petal cookie cutter, press them around the dots / marks. You don't need the rest, the reverse scrolls seem to be eyeballed (each repeat and even each part is slightly different).

And now for the design - my gift for you:

Wow - Thanks majka-ze -- you have simplified this technique tremendously -- I know I can find the 8 petal cutter - looks like maybe a 3/4" cutter would you say? And I can certainly practice plenty this week to try it out.


I will let you know how the practice run turns out and post pics and see what everyone thinks and make any adjustments necessary.

Thanks again --

Suze
