I have a wedding cake to do on the 18th and I need to do a "burlap" border any tips ? I've never made it.
AKara Buntin had som fondant burlap tips on her blog. I can't remember the address but maybe she'll chime in.
Hi connie9003...I also have a burlap design wedding cake for delivery in May. For your burlap decorations, visit the yarn/needle craft section of your local craft store. Purchase the cross stitch plastics for pressing into your fondant. Then dry brush with petal dust to the desired color. I don't know what kind of fondant you will be using or if you've worked with applying fondant pieces to the side of cakes, but you may want to add either Tylose Powder (I think some call it CMC), or a 50/50 blend of gumpaste and fondant. Happy Caking!!!! Fran
I use an amazing product called "Cake lace" by Claire Bowman. I am UK based and this can be purchased on line from here http://www.thecakedecoratingcompany.co.uk/hessian-3d-large-cake-lace-mat. I'm not sure where you are but this company ship all over. It is simplicity itself to use and I have also made incredibly beautiful lace with the relevant mats.
Hope this helps xx
You can use the cake lace but if you want to do it with fondant here's one way: http://acaketorememberva.blogspot.com/2013/04/when-trends-collide-burlap-and-giant.html
Wilton has a burlap roller, that is used to texture fondant.
Thank you all for your replies. This ended up being my finish product.
Mason jars (jam jars in UK), string, bunting.......................Aaaaargh! and now they all want naked cakes, Oh please let it stop!
