I've been studing this for at least 10 minutes, trying to figure out how this was done... stencil with RI, circut cutout or free hand royal icing??? I need to make something similar and I'd like to try and figure out what technique I should be practicing to attempt this particular cake...
Any insight from any of you would be greatly appreciated!!!!
Perhaps a link to the picture would help?
I know! I did put an attachment in there, but apparently I wasn't successful and I tried it 3 times. I thought maybe once I hit "submit", it would show up then... I apologize!
I think you could just copy the link and paste in the body
Here is the picture. ;O)
Wow, I dont know but this is a beautiful cake!!
If I had to say I'd say it was piped on with royal... perhaps some fondant cutouts too, but I think piped.
Wow...that's some work. It looks like it's piped though.
I'm with lilmissbakes...
Looks like piped royal to me to....with a REALLY, REALLY, REALLY small tip!
It was done with piped royal icing and also some fondant or gumpaste hand or cutter cut-outs that were applied to the cake.
Wow... OK, maybe I'm going to regret telling the bride that she shouldn't be afraid to pick something a little more complex than what she'd initially chosen!
Oh well, maybe it's time for me to learn how to do this so that I can get rid of the fear of trying it.
if you're afraid of the piping, you could use a clay extruder to get really thin strings of fondant to use as the stems/vines. the leaves definitely looks like fondant cutouts.
A clay extruder! Such a great idea! Thank you all for your advice! I honestly don't know what I'd do without the cc forums sometimes!
That is a beautiful cake. Best wishes on creating your version of it!
I am new and can't figure out how you would pipe that design at the angle that cake is standing. It is straight up and down. Help shed some light. I am at a loss.
found this info on the photographers site: The cake was made for the couple barbara and darin and was published in the Knot. Cake made by Beaux Gateaux. With a quick google I found a larger pic http://www.yelp.com/biz_photos/LVglQ2JK0HQhLQaF-ngpkg?select=CWEBHzkGCK3AaNAWInfU9g Good Luck hope the larger pick helps a little.
You could also paint it on then add gum paste or fondant pieces for more deminsion.

You have to raise the cake higher on your turn table and have a very steady hand ... something to rest your elbow on.
