AHello Crystal here. I'm new to C.C. but I have been lurking in the shadows hehe. There is soon much here to absorb thank God for this website!

For the past week this cupcake design has been haunting my dreams literally:(! Lol. I'm new to frosting and this just seems like a enigma- for instance where does it begin and where does it end?? I so desperately want to achieve this does it depend on the tip or the technique the pressure or all the above?

Thanks to all that take the time to reply on contact me!

AThis one still bugs me that I cannot duplicate it.http://cdn001.cakecentral.com/d/d3/d3abed99_image.jpeg It's funny to make fun of someone asking for a tutorial for a cupcake swirl, but geez....when it happens to you... It's not funny anymore! I totally get the frustration on trying to figure out something that should be so simple. And still not get it...

Rfisher, you know after looking at the close up photo of that cupcake:

it looks like it could be fondant - as it's perfectly flat with sharp square edges on each folded piece.

If it wasn't for the little bubbles on there.  fondant wouldn't have bubbles, so it must be buttercream right?

 

it could be done with buttercream and piping each 'folded petal' with a flat/basketweave tip. maybe :?

Lol you knowww I was actually trying to take the high road there.:lol: I am too happy to have the solution to be upset with negative comments plus the cupcake design must be liked if the owner has three bakeries no!

That pattern look kinda like this maybe [URL=http://www.sewcakemake.com/2012/04/technique-tuesday-ribbon-frosting.html]http://www.sewcakemake.com/2012/04/technique-tuesday-ribbon-frosting.html[/URL]

I might be wrong I did try searching, for ruffle or folded or pleated buttercream icing/frosting. Hth.

AOh! I did not mean that pointed at you, I promise! I have seen other threads saying that to wonder this much and ask how one does something so simple is silly. I was just musing. I was not clear about that.

AI was taking the high road with cazza1 not you, your perfectly fine. I just find it weird that I'm new here and new to techniques and to have someone address it so harshly with NO examples of anything better is baffling. Kinda makes me scared to ask anything else for fear that I get bashed again. But I did have three wonderful people answer promptly and happily so I take it with a grain of salt!

Did you have a chance to look over the link or any news on the technique search? It's like 6 here in mexico, and I'm having a insomniacs moment so that might not be close enough to what you were implying! I will keep following this thread so I can keep up with if anyone finds out! That design is just to cute!

Welcome to CC, Salemsmommy. I'm glad your questions have been answered. Taking the high road is always a charming trait. This is an awesome site with a wide variety of personalities and members have their own ways of responding to posts. All cazza did was state her cupcake opinion. She can be blunt, the way many of us are when responding.

There's a bit of a duality that allows persons not to always know the full and complete truth.  It's a cloud of courtesy.

 

The courteous manner that is called for here appears to be one of "Golden Silence" meaning that if you don't like something you are expected to remain mum about it on threads.

 

So the truth as to what ALL the people actually think, feel, perceive, or know from their personal experiences is to be withheld, while those who do agree, support, and adore the issue at hand may join in and celebrate.     (How far off is this interpretation..........  IDK .......I'm probably missing the point entirely.)

Internet forums are perhaps not the best place to think in terms of being scared to ask something. If you said that on a forum with primarily men they'd assume you had mental problems. Many people here try to sugarcoat everything, which I personally find nauseating, so try to keep it in perspective that relative to most other forums, people here mostly speak in a nice way. Even though they may be insinuating something really nasty. I'll take cazza's remark over that any day of the week.

Welcome to cake central!

Quite interesting, MB. Your interpretation makes complete sense. I've noticed the ever-present dichotomy but never stopped long enough to understand why it was happening. It also explains why the business forum is the most troublesome and complicated: pragmatic business-oriented responses are met with anger by non-business dabblers who ask questions but don't like the answers (and how those answers are presented).

AMBAlaska, I love the way you put that. And I don't think I've ever seen this "dichotomy" ever expressed so intelligently. Now we can just reference the cloud of courtesy and the dichotomy. Delightful :)

My psychiatrist told me I was crazy and I said I want a second opinion. He said okay, you're ugly too.

WOWZA!  Dichotomy, pragmatic, and dabblers in the same paragraph.  I could just give you a hug!  If I wasn't so deep-brain-tired from my Spanish homework, I'd think up a witty response with all sorts of fun words.
