Looks like it's covered with chocolate curl pieces?

Sooo pretty.

I believe that Linda Fripp is known for her use with rice paper. I think that's what she's used on this cake, too.

Nick Lodge does a similar effect with chocolate curls.
I can't locate any pictures.

But that did look cleaner than chocolate.

It's probably rice paper because it's so white, unless someone has been messing around with photoshop. White chocolate would be a little creamier color, I'd think.

She's known for her rice paper designs. Take a closer look here.

Zane Beg has pics in cake magazines with the chocolate curls like this. He works with Norm Davis. They sell a chocolate curler for that purpose.

No yeah I'm sure it is the rice paper--just commenting on my rabbit trail earlier. And Oh yeah I got the famous "N" decorator wrong--Norm not Nick!

duh, Kate!

Interestingly enough I just watched an episode of Ultimate Cakes and they had a shot of Norm's chocolate curl cake in the beginning--much more high and low texture and not as precise as the lovely cake in the picture. Each beautiful in their own right.

if you look closely at the larger image on Linda's website, it almost has the same appearance as tissue-paper craft work i used to do in elementary school. we would cut little squares of tissue paper, then wrap them around the end of a pencil, add a dab of glue and stick onto a sheet of paper...if you cut out pieces from rice paper and used icing or an edible glue you might get the same effect.

lovely regardless of how it is done!

I see that they call it "edible parchment" in the description of the materials they use. Now I have a question. Is that the same as rice paper?

I'd guess it is, and that "edible parchment" just sounds fancier than "rice paper" icon_lol.gif

Norm Davis has a similar cake and uses chocolate curls. It's very pretty though.
