If you were hand painting flowers on a cake, how would you start? Would you freehand it? Find a pattern and trace it on the cake? Another technique?
For me I usually just have a few pictures to go by and freehand it. I wonder if you could transfer it on the cake by tracing the pattern with non toxic chalk through wax or parchment paper, like a carbon copy.
Thanks for the response! I guess I need to just go and try it and see how it goes!
I just freehand too...you can try on a scrap of fondant first to get a feel for it.
I have paintedflowers and I just take a mall paintbrush and put a little food coloring in the lid with a little clear vanilla, and paint it on, u could always use the edible markers and draw it first, but I did it freehand
I free hand mine too....just give it a try! Remember even in nature all flowers aren't perfect either
I tried last night on an extra piece of fondant I had. It went ok, I need to make a few adjustments, esp when deciding which way is best to outline the petals to give it more detail. But I am going to try again before I start on my cake, so I will know exactly what I want to do. Thanks for the responses and the help!
