AI recently came across a cake which I found amazing and would love to learn to do this. It was titles smocking and piping. Please click here[URL]http://m.flickr.com/#/photos/rosey_sugar_palace/998067559/[/URL] To view it. If there's a book can anyone refer it? I'm not sure on the piping skills it Looks like basic and Oriental but I'm not sure.
There's a few of directions I found.
1. found this book - Smocking with Sugarpaste. The book is expensive (out of print and hard to find) but I think you can get a used one on ebay.
2. Do a search on CC for smocked cakes and pm that person for direction
3. If you Google fondant smocking a tutorial for smocking on cookies by Couture Cakes by Rose will come up.
I hope someone else chimes in with better avenues for you - :)
The Cynthia Venn book is cheaper on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/dp/1853911305/?tag=cakecentral-20+in+Sugarpaste
AThank you. I did respond to a few but the postings are a few years old. I was only able to find the video of smocking. I wasn't sure of an actual book. Thanks! I just got the book for $5.99. I can't wait to read it!
Do you think on top of the smocking she uses basic piping skills along with the Oriental method?
It's becoming a habit.
AWell I apologies. I did search!
