A lady asked me to make this wedding cake for her. Could someone please help me out? I am wondering how to do that black design on all the tiers. Is there a template for this? Thanks!
Your link isn't working.
Thanks!!! I thought it showed up in there when I posted it, not sure what happened. Lets try this again.
I don't think there is a templett/stencil. One would just roll 'strings' of fondant and form them into the design then pipe in the dots and flourishes.
I personally would try something like this. I've used these molds and I <3 LOVE <3 them!
Super easy, very ornate and full proof.
Well yeah, I guess there might be some molds out there that could help form the design. I almost never had the extra $$ to spend on such luxuries so got used to making things myself :)
You're so right Kakeladi! Sometimes we just have to get creative and your suggestion is a great one also. Just trying to offer an alternative method depending on the skill level, patience and technique that a cake artist has. I have this mold and have used it in so many ways from using small portions for cupcakes and more. Of course, it all boils down to the bride. If they want something like that which is very ornate, I incorporate the cost into the cake.
Hi Cakebutler, I made a cake with that exact design, a few years ago. I put the ribbon on each tier of the cake. Then I piped the black royal icing on each tier. Then I assembled the cake at the venue. It was very easy.
Practice with the royal icing, until you are happy with the look. Then pipe it on the cake.
Good luck, you can do it!!!!
it definitely looks piped to me.
Shucks I was hoping it was a fondant/gum paste cut out :( Just hope I can be steady enough for piping. Do you have any problems with royal black piping bleeding into the white fondant? Thanks for all your comments!
AI've piped black royal on white fondant with no Problem.
AWhat I have done before on things like these is blow the photo up n my computer as large as I could. Then cut out the section I needed. Printed it our and made my own template from it. I had to work with it a little to make sure the proportions were okay but it worked. Maybe you could do something like that.
