I am having problems posting this picture of the baby carriage...I'm not sure why...
Anyone know if there are problems with attaching pictures...its a .jpg and only 33kb
There's a problem attaching pics in a post lately. Best way is to use a photo hosting site like tinypic.com and then copy the link they give you here in your post. Another way is to put it in your cake pics. But since it's not your own creation, the mods will probably delete it from there.
It looks like it is buttercream which has been smoothed out or patted down. I am only guessing because the rest of the cake has been finished in buttercream. Hope this helps.
It looks as though it made with a size 9 or 12 tip and you hold the tip at a 45 degree angle and squeeze. Hold the tip in place until the icing starts to fill in the area and slowly drag it backwards allowing the icing to puff up and fill in the area. I hope you can understand what I said.
I agree w/the others, it is b'cream piped with a large round tip, then smoothed (if necessary). The technique is called "figure piping".
Thank you for your help....I was thinking that for the carriage top, but wasn't sure about the bottom...
