I am doing a baby shower cake in a few weeks, and the theme is based on the picture I am going to attatch. I have the cake planned out already, but 2 of the tiers involve doing the pattern. I'm wondering if everyone would try to duplicate this really hard pattern, or just use the same colors, and do a different pattern. Your thoughts would be great.
I would. I would charge up the wazoo, but I'd do it!
I would try and replicate the same thing... the owl can be printed out to the size you want on the cake and use it as a template to cut out flat pieces of fondant and if your piping skills are good you can copy the rest of the design too. All the best
If you can get a good pic, upload it and send it to be printed on an icing sheet.
icingimages.com (sure there are other sites that do it too)
Sure, once you get the owl. One of those patterns is a Wilton press . Then you can use other presses for the curlicues. and then straight lines.
