I want to learn how to pipe scroll work. Any advise on where to start? There are so many patterns out there I don't know where to start. What is the basic standard scroll pattern? My cake is due on Friday!

Please help!!!!!!

For basic scrolls, if you have never done them, get the template kit from Wilton. I would never try to freehand scrolls esp if you are doing something new.

I have done a little scroll work. My piping skills are pretty good. I guess my question is what pattern, repetition, styles are used for a starting point? Some of the scroll work I am seeing no patterns and are seeing some followed strickly. I hope this makes sense.

find a cake with scrolls that you like, then look at only small areas, scrolls are mostly long s shapes with a c shape attached to one side. sometimes there is a little e motion on the underside of the s. Make sure your icing flows well and keep you pressure even. I think that free hand scrolls look the best, you can certainly tell when someone has used a pattern. it takes a little practice.
