Anyone know how I can achieve the look on the tiers in this picture?
So far I have tried using a small piece of sponge with firm peak royal icing and basically sponging it onto a piece of fondant. I found the "spikes" were a tad too large. I regret not taking a pic of it to post up here but any advice would be welcome.
The pic was sent to me via email so I'm not sure who to credit.
How about using a brush? Dipt the tips of a round bristle brush and blot on the cake??? I really have no clue...just guessing
You can add some water to your royal icing and try again. Or you can use melted white chocolate. Or use a paint sprayer to spray cocoa butter on the surface.
Thanks guys. I actually started with softer royal icing and eventually ended up with the best results with firm peak. Best being relative.
I'll try the paintbrush and see. Any guess right now is worth a try. The wedding isn't until next year so I have time to practise.
Instead of royal icing, why not try buttercream?
lots of time i would try a large firm bristle paintbrush , and almost 'stipple' on the royal
