I am going to do a 5 tier wedding cake next month who wants a damask print. Just need thoughts/suggestions -- it will be round tiers with buttercream (white) with black buttercream stencilling for the damask. I have read up on the stencilling side of things and the few damask posts on this site but didn't know of anyone's previous learning experience with this? i would be more calm if it is royal icing with fondant but she doesn't want fondant. Thank you!!! (other main concern is the "bleeding" tendency of black frosting on white)
The cake cricut can do it other than that i dont know
I have done black buttercream stencil on a white cake and it did not bleed. Here is the cake: http://family.webshots.com/photo/2455567600048684272ACOJWT
When stenciling around a round buttercream cake, I employ the help of my DH to help hold the stencil in place. HTH a little bit.
Your cake is stunning!!!!
thank you for your suggestions....will practice before the big day! and no cricut here....love your cake!!!
I just stenciled for the first time on buttercream last week. It was much easier than I thought it would be. In fact, I prefer using buttercream to stencil versus royal icing, now that I've had the chance to stencil with it. I made sure to chill the tiers very cold before I stenciled. Then I would put them back in the fridge while I worked on another tier, then bring out the rest of the tiers and so on and so forth.
