AAny suggestions on duplicating this drizzle? Royal icing - worried it'll slip too much before it hardens. Watered down buttercream Tinted candy melts?[ATTACHMENT=1680]image.jpg (126k. jpg file)[/ATTACHMENT]
it looks like slung chocolate-- my first thought is to test it on a cold cake so the choc sets up on contact--but then you gotta watch out for condensation so... just test it out first--so pretty--like a light jackson pollock effect
and i think the biggest pitfall is to hold down on the edit button-- it would be so easy for me to over do it ;)
See my post on your other thread :-)
Hmmmmm.......why the repeat budrowsaba? same question, same cake as the previous thread.
i think budrowsaba mighta just hit i think budrowsaba mighta just hit the submit submit button once too many times-- 2 many x's--then i then i go looking go looking for some posts posts to talk cake on to talk cake on and i thought i thought i saw answers to that post yester yesterday but i went & answered it again just in case 'cause i needed to have a post a post to answer talk to -- then i fell in love with the picture & the idea
sorry you asked yet
i shoulda went & checked first--sorry sorry
they were posted two hours apart, and with different titles. started to look like spam
oh yeah like i said i did not go looking--but sometimes our little newbee-ites can't find their posts after they post them? idk mb
It was really cool to see the cake LizzieAylett posted, so that was a nice result of all this !!!
beautiful work, lizzieaylett, and great idea/results using the royal icing too
Thanks MB and K8 :-) I was given the same photo to work from so just went for it, although my colours were limited by what ribbons were available to match.
I hadn't thought of using candy melts, as they are really expensive over here and I don't have the right colourings. Royal is so cheap and easy to use, that I just went for it naturally.
It is a bit confusing having two threads, but I don't think there's anything sinister about it. Maybe OP forgot to refresh the main forum page and couldn't see it had posted already, so tried again.
OP, I hope you have fun with this cake - I certainly did :-)
