and what is it called?
Hi! I'm not sure what the technique is called. I'm pretty new at cakes but I think that this was done in BC and with one of those x-large tips. Maybe a large rose tip? I would also say that you would work the "stripes" from the top down alternating the side that you start on to create the layered look. I'm not sure but that's how I would try it and then tweak it from there to get it right. I think you can also do this with fondant strip rolled thin. Hope this helps!
I don't know but I would like to find out too. It is beautiful!
It is strips of fondant placed on the cake. Start at the top and work your way down. It looks like the roses are made of modeling chocolate with shaved chocolate on the tops of the cakes.
I don't know what the technique is called but I think it looks like white chocolate piecies with chocolate shavings sprinkled on top. IMHO
I'm new to cake decorating too but it kinda looks like strips of fondant with one edge rounded and layered from top to bottom of each tier.
definitely not buttercream... to clean. that is modeling chocolate, overlapped from the top going down..
looks like white chocolate
I vote for white chocolate.
It is white chocolate wraps.
what ever its called its striking. I just happened to stumble onto the website. Fell in love at first sight.
Like everyone else I haven't a clue if it has a name, but.........
one can use *any* of the suggested dough-like mediums: white chocolate; fondant; or modeling chocolate. You will get a similar enought look with any one of them.
I, too, agree, it is striking and beautiful and elegant. I think that the people who said it was white modeling chocolate were right. I think it does have a bit of a rose look to it, but what ever it's name is doesn't matter. If anyone finds out a name for it, you can let the rest of us know.
I think it's modeling chocolate because of the texture. But WOW, 4 tier cake and all that chocolate for only $576.00 US dollars. That's a really good deal even if the roses aren't included in the price.
I would send them over an email! They will most likely tell you the name of the technique and what material they used...my guess is white modeling chocolate as like most people said earlier.
Contact them, I've contacted bakers before with questions on their products and they have been so nice as to reply!
Hope you find out!! If you do, share with us!!
somethingsweetbyflo: I might try that. I noticed a different language on the page and so was a little unsure. Might go back and check it out.
There's a tutorial on here about making a rose cake using fondant. I think you could take that tutorial and adjust it to get a cake like this one.
