I saw a Martha Stewart cake with a damask print. Royal Icing was piped over a template and after it dried it was applied to the cake. However, she used a square cake, I would like to try this same method, only on a round cake. I'm worried that the royal icing will break (or wont give the same effect), when placed on a round cake. I know that I can use stencils, but I don't have any damask stencils right now. Is this possible on a round cake?

Here's the link to the cake:

try piping it on the template and then putting it around the cake pan you are using to dry it. If you dry it flat, RI doesn't bend when dry, so it will break if you try to put it around a round cake. hth
