I am planning on stenciling a cake with damask stencil. The stencil is about 5 inches tall and normally my cakes are only 4 inches tall. What is the best way to do this? I cant really cut it down. I figure I can either make sure the cake is 5 inches tall or could I tape off the top to get a straight line? I am not sure if that works or not. Any suggestions appreciated! thanks
I've heard some cut the stencil down and others tape across the bottom (or top) on both sides. I've not tried it yet though.
I tape the top if needed. My cakes tend to be 4.5" tall. I did trim a little off the bottom of the stencil too, but you have to make sure you cut straight and even.
thanks! I guess I am on the right track then!
I use blue painter's tape and tape both sides so it doesn't stick to the cake or get unsticky with the royal icing.
