How do I pipe on the side of a cake, without having a tilting turntable? I can't imagine it would be easy to pipe letters at that angle....?

I have a basis Wilton turntable and I just roll a tea towel and wedge it under so that it's tilted - works a treat... just make sure you have a not slip mat thingy between your cake and the turntable otherwise it will sliiiiiiide! icon_smile.gif

HTH?!

Cheers!

That's a great idea!! I don't do a lot of piping on the sides of cakes because it's just too difficult, but this might help--I'm going to try it!

I like having the cake up high helps me - I set the cake on the top edge of our snack bar - it is the perfect height.

I just did lattice on the side of a cake this weekend and it would of been nice to have it tilted. It was a little difficult!

sometimes I've piped the letters (or other piping) onto wax paper, frozen them and then peeled them off and stuck them on. Or used Royal to pipe on wax paper and let it harden and then stick them on.
