I need a way to do a damask print with fondant?? I have to do a wedding cake for a friend in July, one layer has to be Damask print. Im also doing polk a dots and stripes in fondant, so i want it to all be the same texture....Any ideas?
Just getting it straight...you want the damask print to be made out of fondant or you want to put it onto fondant?
I have seen a lot of cakes with cutouts that make up the damask print.
a dvd from GSA
also they have some stamps that you could impress into the fondant but I don't think that is what you mean....
You want to lay the damask pattern on top of the cake covering right?
I just did a search using the word "damask" in the galleries, and most of those use stencils. But there was one this week on the favorites line that I read used cutouts and was very striking. Found it in square wedding cakes.
Edited to add: Cake is by nicoles-a-tryin
There are a couple of ways to do this depending on your skill level and the look you are trying to achieve.
1. You can use a stencil and put the pattern onto fondant using RI. (High skill level, can be difficult to achieve a nice look)
2. You can use a stencil and cut out the pieces of fondant with an exacto and then attach them to your cake. (not difficult, but can be very time consuming, plus you have to be very organized so you get the pieces all put back together the same was as the stencil)
3. There are cutters out there, I think Sugarshack has a nice set if I am not mistaken, that you can get to do a damask pattern. (very easy, but you are the one who has to create the pattern, it is not like a stencil where the pattern is already set out for you)
Decide on what is best for your budget and skill level and give it a whirl. Good Luck!
Here is one by LeahS - Damask cut out of fondant and applied to cake....
hmmm....can't find cutters.... still looking....
to answer your question Catlharper. the whole cake is going to be fondant... Five tiers.. The first is a 14 in round with the damask print, 2nd stripes, 3rd polk a dots, 4th a quitled pattern with pearls and the top green with the initials. All layers but the top are white fondant with the pattern being balck. Ive been looking around and stephen benison has some good cutters that i think i can acheive the damask print pattern. thank you for all the replies!
My cake in my profile pic is royal icing damask stencil, but then fondant stripes and I didn't think the continuity of the cake was harmed by using alternate fondant and royal icing...
They sell damask cutters but they can be very pricey. I would just use stencils.
