I've been asked to replicate the cake attached and was hoping to do it in BC. Do you think it will be ok? I was thinking to pipe the dots, maybe spacing them out with a pattern off the computer. How do you get rounded edges like this with BC?
Thanks in advance - my first wedding cake!
url incase it doesn't work!
Those are called Swiss dots, sets of 3 dots done in a 2 tip in diagonal lines on the cake.
As for those edges you could carve the edge to that shape. I would personally have an extra(thinner) layer to get that. The other thought that comes to mind is putting extra frosting on and then smoothing at an angle rather than up and down and smoothing it out with a viva towel.
Those are my speculations from my caking experience. Good Luck!
To round out the top edges measure down the side of the cake about 1" and also one 1" in from the edge on the top of the cake. Hold a knife so that it touches each mark and cut away the edge.
Another way is to take a cake circle 2" smaller than the cake and hold the knife at an angle so it touches the board but not the cake and cut away the edge.
thanks guys - it all helps x
