guys... really need your help...the ivory tiers look like they are textured.. any ideas how to do this?
If you zoom in on the photo, it actually looks more like a stucco type of finish, except there are no sharp bits sticking out, the points appear to be more rounded. It makes me wonder if its buttercream or royal icing that has been patted with a hand or spatula all the way around, and smoothed somehow slightly afterwards (like with paper towel or printer paper).
It's a lovely cake.
That is not cornelli lace, that is actually texturing, you use Royal Icing, or melted chocolate, and a sponge or clean rag to to that.
Dip your sponge or rag, in whicherer you use, and bloch it to your cake.
thank you for these tips!!!
Yep, it is texturing. I just watched Bronwen Weber (sp) do it on a Cake Challenge. She made a car look rusted and old with that technique. It is royal icing or buttercream applied with a sponge. Then she dusted it with luster dust for an fantastic look. Super cool!!!!
i've tried googling 'texturing' to no avail. Is there a specific name for this?
I called it a stucco finish when I did my video on that. I thinned my buttercream/royal and sponged it on.
@sweetflowers can you send me the video??
