For those of us not on FB, is there any other way of finding this tutorial?

cdgleason Posted 27 Jan 2011 , 6:50pm

Andrea stated on her flickr account that she's not going to do a tutorial on this techniques because it's not 'hers' to do!
I think the only source for a tutorial is to wait for "cake central" magazine to come out!

zespri Posted 27 Jan 2011 , 6:53pm

I thought I'd be helpful and look it up in facebook for those who don't have a facebook account, but I can't find it on there either! dsilvest or tiggy, are you able to post a direct link to facebook please?

Andrea isn't, but this lady is: Susan Trianos General Mills. That's who I was asking about. (Sorry I didn't make that more clear.) icon_biggrin.gif

bakincakin Posted 27 Jan 2011 , 6:55pm

That is really neat!

The tutorial is not on here. This is just her Facebook account.

bobwonderbuns Posted 27 Jan 2011 , 6:59pm

You know, a while back, last summer maybe, a lady here on CC did a gorgeous dummy cake in pink using this very same "billowing" technique. I can't remember who she was though, I'm wondering it that's one of the two gals mentioned here though. Does anyone remember that?

dsilvest Posted 27 Jan 2011 , 7:00pm

It was Susan's cake.

just search "Susan Trianos General Mills" in the search field at the top of your facebook page. It comes right up. You can't see her wall though unless you are her friend. So I don't know if she has any kind of tutorial there. You can see her pictures and she has another great example of a cake with the billowing. I friend requested her and will let you know when she responds.

tiggy2 Posted 27 Jan 2011 , 7:03pm

Here's Andrea's facebook page http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=17128438765#!/group.php?gid=17128438765&v=info

bobwonderbuns Posted 27 Jan 2011 , 7:06pm

AHA I found it: http://cakecentral.com/gallery/1678457

My question is, after it was stolen (yes, some competitor STOLE her entry) icon_confused.gif was it ever retrieved?

zespri Posted 27 Jan 2011 , 7:08pm

do you mean literally picked up the cake and took it away....???? *gobsmacked*

dsilvest Posted 27 Jan 2011 , 7:08pm

The tutorial is not on either of their facebooks. I will be in the new Cake Central magazine only right now.

That's what she says in her comments on that picture. I know, some people have NO CLASS AT ALL!! tapedshut.gifthumbsdown.gif

dsilvest Posted 27 Jan 2011 , 7:10pm

To my knowledge it was never recovered. Not sure if the theives were ever caught either.

bobwonderbuns Posted 27 Jan 2011 , 7:13pm

That's really horrible. I mean, really, would it kill them to ASK for instructions or TRY to figure it out themselves???? icon_confused.gif That's the second most horrible competition story I've ever heard. (The first being a lady who did very intricate stringwork on a cake and the hubby of her biggest competition came over and waved his arm in the direction of her cake, thus ruining the stringwork!) People are really slimy sometimes! icon_evil.gifthumbsdown.gif

bakencake Posted 27 Jan 2011 , 7:18pm

Bob, i cant believe that somebody store her cake icon_eek.gif
looking at it close the billowing looks like strip that are puffed in the middle and pinched on the sides (did i explain it right?). I've seen the review about the magazine so i'll just drive about an hour out of my way and get the mag at my cake store when it comes out.

Here's a video step-by-step by a brilliant cake-maker called Elaine Thomas

artscallion Posted 27 Jan 2011 , 7:21pm

Looking closely at those pics, I wonder if it's not marshmallows, or something light like that, with little sheets of very thin gumpaste wrapped over it and pinched at the ends to kind of pleat the sides.

icer101 Posted 27 Jan 2011 , 7:36pm

relznik, looking at this link, i do believe this is the technique used on the cake . I was thinking that was how it is done, using the dresden and veining tool. It sure looks the same.
