AHello I'm new to thinks like this and I need help I'm making a cake for my friend it's going to a straw hat cake (one piece straw hat ) and I was wondering how I could make it look like it ? Please help
you could pipe it in a basket weave pattern
or you could press a texture mat against fondant to get the straw looking hat surface
or you could use a paring knife to make hatch marks on either buttercream or fondant to get that look
then when you color over it it will take on the appreance of straw
Hello. Here is a video from you tube showing how to pipe basket weave. Good luck.
When I did this one:
I used a mat like this as an impression mat on the fondant:
The hardest part was getting the center of the fondant to center correctly on the cake.
That at is just awesome!
Thank you. I was always kind of sad that this particular cake didn't garner any comment when I first posted it. Probably had more to do with when I posted it.
Again, thank you for your comment.
