Β  I am making this wedding cake but am a bit nervous. I usually only do fondant covered cakes but the bride wants something very traditional. She also does not like fondant so I am doing SMBC with scrolls. My question is what is the best way to do scroll work? I don't feel comfortable doing it free hand (even though the pattern looks relatively easy). Is there any tricks up your sleeves that would could share with me? Thanks!
Thank you both for the links and suggestions! So very helpful!πŸ˜„πŸ‘
Thanks for the suggestions!! I, too, hate buying supplies that I only will used once. I have a whole pantry full of stuff, lol! 😊

Also, for the damask pattern, I am assuming a stencil would be the route to go? I was REALLY hoping not to used a stencil though because I have horrible luck with them.

Thanks for the replies! I guess I don't feel so bad now since it seems to be pretty normal to lose the sharpness once the fondant goes on, lol! MBalaska, I *did* mean mixing the two together.

Yes!!! That is *exactly* what happens!
Thanks! I have gotten some pretty nice edges with SMBC..but it seems like when the icing starts to warm up, it kinda loses the sharpness? Maybe that only happens to me, lol! 😜
I really want to start icing my cakes in white chocolate ganache to get sharper edges, however, my customer really like my SMBC iced cakes. So, I thought maybe I can mix the two and get the best of both worlds?? Has anyone tried this? Do you get sharper edges? Thanks!
