Hopefully someone will be able to help me. Take a look at this cake:
For the green scrolls on the two white tiers, how do you think those were done? To me it doesn't look like they were piped on. It kind of looks like they were painted on. If they were painted on that person had a steady hand! Also, on the short/squat tiers, are those baby calla lillies? How would you make those? Just a small leaf cutter and yellow stamen?
I'm looking at ideas for a girlfriend's wedding cake. Her color is plum though which should be interesting...
Thanks for your help.
Maybe the green scrolls were stencils???
Yeah, it looks to me that the green scrolls are painted on with food coloring.
I think your idea of using the leaf cutter for the little calla lilies would work well.
It's a beautiful cake! Good luck!
Yeah the more I look at it the more it looks like they were painted on. The line thickness varies. I don't know if I have a hand that steady to paint them on.
She is undecided as to what kind of cake she wants so I'm just surfing looking for some that she may be interested in. I like the varying thickness of the tiers. I've never done a cake like that.
Thanks for all your help!
I would do the callas with a small heart cutter. The scrolls looks like a stencil to me.
the green scrolls were painted on. you don't have to have a real real steady hand. you just move with quick (not too quick) movements and a stiff wrist which will keep your lines straight. the difference in the lines depends on if you use your tip of the brush or the full brush. practice on paper before starting your cake so you can see what kind of design you want. i would do the callas with a heart cutter too.
Ok thanks for the tip.
I haven't tried looking for that particular stencil but I might try to search for one today. If it's too expensive I'll just do it by hand.
