I am going to be doing a wedding cake for my nephew and his fiance. Hopefully I'll be able to attach the image that they sent me. In the picture the cake has scrollwork. I've done scrollwork before so that isn't an issue but I am wondering how they got the effect on these particular scrolls? Which tip was used or did they use some technique I don't know? Any help would be appreciated.


Ok, I can't figure the darn thing out. Here's a link to flicker where I uploaded it. Thank you!

I call it feathering. You use the same tip. make the main scroll then add the little feathers. It's really, really easy once you get going and I use that technique all the time, especially for hiding scrolling goofs.

Thank you! I have a cake in the fridge all ready to decorate and take to church in the morning and now that I know how to do it I'm going to practice. icon_smile.gif

BTW, I looked at your gallery, your cakes are exquisite!

It could also be considered overpiping. As Kory said, just add smaller extra Cs with lighter pressure.
