I love the petal effect that is so popular now. Does anyone have a picture of the back where the row joins together? How do you blend it in to the starting point? I alway seem to have a problem when it comes to finishing a row whether it be petal effect, basketweave or borders. TIA
I just did 2 of them yesterday for the first time and what I did was instead of swiping the spatula from left to right, I went the opposite way on the very last petal.
When you do your very last dot or ball, make it a bit elongated to where it almost meets the first dot. Then take your spatula and swipe it backwards. It really worked well on the second cake since I used the first on to practice on. Iwill up load the picture tonite, but unfortunately I didn't think to photograph the back! I hope that helps.
I just kind of swiped it as close as I could to the last petal and waited for it to crust and smoothed it down. I also didn't start and stop all the rows at the same place, I did one row of petals then the next one up and so forth, that way all the joints aren't in the same place.
Does anyone have a link for a tutorial of this technique? I did a search earlier today, and nothing showed up.
Here's a link to it: http://www.mycakeschool.com/video-tutorials/petal-effect-around-sides/
Thank you so much!!!
