I have a customer who wants this cake http://www.marthastewartweddings.com/article/coral-cake but ivory buttercream with coral colored coral. Any thoughts on how to do this type of coral? It says it's in RI but what size tip would you use? WOuld you pipe it straight on the cake or on parchment and then place on cake when dry? Any tips would be great!
Personally i would pipe it on to parchment and attach it to the cake when Dry. No idea on what size of tip to use, but you would definately have to build it up in spots to give it that coral-y look. Maybe start with a 5, and work your way down to a 2 or 3 with the layering. HTH
Thank you I'll try that! Any other suggestions are WELCOME!!!
I saw coral and thought about isomalt coral until I saw the picture.
Isomalt coral is cool
