I'm making a dummy cake, and I'm not sure how to get royal icing to look like this? Please help
I watched a show the other night where they took a sponge and applied the icing and it made it look similar to this. This is a beautiful look, hope you can figure it out and post pics when done.
Take a sponge and dab the icing all over the cake.
On my dummy cake I used sanding sugar (glued on with Tylose glue) to give me that "snowy" look.
Hard to see clearly, but it does look to me like sanding sugar.
just tried the sponge method....its looking sort of stucco-like?
I checked Michael's for sanding sugar but didnt see any....where can i buy that?
Thanks in advance!
I do not know where you are or where got that picture, so help me out here.
Are you sure that's RI on there? I ask because there's a white velvet spray that can be used on rolled fondant.
White velvet spray? Tell me more.
I know about chilling chocolate (or I guess fondant) and running chocolate thinned with cocoa butter through a (new) paint sprayer. That makes the chocolate bunnies looked flocked. Is this something else you're talking about?
Spill it, Playing!
PCB (the company in France that Jacques Torres used to buy a lot of supplies from) makes a velvet spray. Honestly, I do not know what it's made of, but it's for use on pastry, etc.
I can hook you up the links to the products, but I'm sure someone out there sells the individual cans.
Here's the link for the chocolate velvet spray
and here's the one for the colors set
By the way, the site these links comes from is one of my favorites.
Hmmm...quick google search on white velvet spray came up with this...
Thanks for all the ideas! I was sent the picture, so im not sure where it came from. i assumed i would use royal icing because i am making a dummy cake...that's what i get for assuming
Ahhhh. "Must be used on frozen products." Exactly what we were doing in culinary school. It's just chocolate thinned down with a lot of cocoa butter. We used a paint sprayer. It is a very cool effect.
i just did a winter themed bday cake with "snow". i used sanding sugar -- and i got it from Michaels. usually in the baking supply aisle by sprinkles, ect. Not sure if you have Hobby Lobby's near you, but they carry it also.
after i put the fondant on, i just lightly brushed it with water and pressed the sanding sugar (which i also mixed a bit of rainbow dust in it for xtra sparkle) into the cake. was really easy and cool effect!
It kind of looks like mashed-down cotton candy. I've seen cotton candy and spun sugar used on some cakes in NYC, but never to this extent.
Ok, folks, what do you think? Could that be what it is?
