I love the effect of the painting/drawing as on this cake: http://cakecentral.com/gallery/2059455/hand-painted-black-and-white-wedding-cake. Does anyone know what it is called? I would like to read up on it but haven't been able to find anything. I found lots of examples, but no instructions or demos.

Thanks in advance for the help!

Pam

The description says it is hand-painted. The design is called flourishes (or scrolls, but not so much in the cake biz). See:

This is a British instructional video, but it covers the method. For "rejuvenating spirits" we in the US would use lemon extract or vodka (because they dry very quickly and don't melt into the fondant) with powdered color or colored gel.

Thanks for the replies icon_smile.gif Flourishes are what I kept running across, and tattoo drawings. Guess I will start downloading flourishes and print some out to practice with thumbs_up.gif
