Does anyone have any experience with imprinting a design on buttercream like the cake below? I was asked to create a cake similar to this one and I've never done anything like it. Also what is your opinion on the flowers? Are they fondant, gumpaste? Thanks in advance for your help.
It's hard to see what you are calling a design. The way I see it one would just press a sponge on the b'cream as soon as you can touch it and not have any icing come off on your finger. Otherwise one could use a paper towel to imprint any design as seen here: http://www.cakecentral.com/gallery/i/1299409/black-roses & here: http://www.cakecentral.com/gallery/i/1349755/dueo-occasion-theme I've done that many times :) I think it can really add a special look to a cake.
i think i would pipe those flowers
Well I tried to edit my post above but I get a message that the post is locked! :( Here's another paper towel imprinted cake I made: http://www.cakecentral.com/gallery/i/1294654/diamond-baby-shower
This is sooooo frustrating!! I again tried to edit my post but it won't let me:( :(
I think the flowers are gp (or fondant) but they can be made w/air-drying b'cream if you'd rather.
