I am doing a wedding cake in Jan. and it has just buttercream lines all around each tier. Is there anything I can get to help my hand stay in place to get those lines perfect?
Make a stack of books or something for your elbow to rest on at the right right height for each line. Or magazines, they're thinner and easier to adjust height.
I'm sure there's a less ghetto way to do it, but that's what I do.
I was hoping there was some kind of tool to use. lol
there is a tool...Wilton Cake Marker. It has a little pin and you an put it at the height you want and it will mark a line (template) around the cake when spun on a turntable....if that would help.
Not sure if these would be of any help. But here is what I have but then I don't make huge wedding cakes. Go down all the way down page and you will see two different pink markers Both are on right hand side.

They have one for 10 inch cakes and the other is for 8-9 inch cakes. They are pink in color.
I think I get this. I just hope I can have a steady hand thru it all!
