Does anyone have any idea how to accomplish this "lace" look? For the life of me, I can't figure it out. Is it an impression mat? Or is it freehand piping (I hope not!!!!).
Is there a photo or link to show what you are talking about?
Can't figure out how to attach the photo... Here's the link:
That cake was done by Katie Watts of Couture Cakes, definitely hand piped. You can tell with the close up on her site. It's a beautiful cake though.
Thank you Odyssey! I hadn't seen the close-up.
Hand-piped royal icing and brush embroidery.
Ladies, what about the shimmer? How do I get the piping to have that shimmer? I can't imagine that she went over all the piping with luster dust.....
Not all of it is shimmery. I can see that the large areas where the flowers are have shimmer, even on the inside.
The pearls are also shiny, almost look like real ones.
And I think that people do paint on top of royal icing piping when they need to. She could have just brushed it on top.
the cake is beautiful..... which I could pipe like that!
Thanks for your help ladies!!
