I am going to be making a wedding cake next month (it will be my third!) and the bride would like it to look like this:
The "rings" look like they were done with a spatula/spoon/whatever, is that correct? Or were ribbons piped? TIA!
AIt is. I just did one with this finish. Using an angled spatula Start at the bottom of each tier and spin your cake on your turn table. Easiest finish I've ever done and it looked amazing.[ATTACHMENT=1858]image.jpg (1,015k. jpg file)[/ATTACHMENT]
I tried to attach it. Don't know if it will work.
AYes... a small angled spatula. I did 2 single tiered cakes using this method and by far it was the quickest and easiest buttercream finish I have ever done.
I've done this cake a few times, but I like to work with my small offset spatula from the TOP down.
The link above is for a short, excellent video by Kara Buntin, a wonderful member of CakeCentral, on how to do this technique (about 2 minutes into the video).
Thanks so much, everyone! I am glad to read that it is very quick and simple. And thanks for the video link, Apti!
