My Version Of Lambeth Method

Okay, this is all you're going to get. I have one more tier to put on. I shouldn't have even shown you all this much. I typically wait until after the show but if I did that with this I might not want to show it . You can tell I have confidence! I have so many of you out there in Cake Central land that have taken an interest in my project that I figured I owed you all this shot.

cakemommy Says... 8 years ago

Neither do I! :sssh: :twisted: You have no idea how many times I've taken those bottom drop strings off and redone them. I'll be doing it again tomorrow morning rest assured! :D

Omicake Says... 8 years ago

Delicate, beautiful and so different !!! It's like going back in time.Lovely color!

mjjandz Says... 8 years ago

beautiful cake. How long did it take you to do that?

cakemommy Says... 8 years ago

Thank you! The bottom border about 2 1/2 hours total time and the top about another 2 hours.

Parable Says... 8 years ago

Be careful, if they are too perfect they might not look REAL! :wink:

cakemommy Says... 8 years ago

Funny! I spent 30 minutes this morning tearing off all the top border. I am redoing it!

kmk Says... 8 years ago

I like it. How did you make the 3rd line of icing? Is this a special tip?

tyty Says... 8 years ago

Looks beautiful and elegant.

Omicake Says... 8 years ago

You have said it!! Practice makes perfect and you have accomplished it!! Good luck!

Elleth Says... 8 years ago

Looks awesome to me! You should definitely go for it.

Nitu Says... 8 years ago

Beautiful cake! I love all decoration and details! I wish you all the bests from my heart.

cakemommy Says... 8 years ago

Thank you all so much for your words of encouragement. I am really excited to do this cake for the show but I always always second guess myself and I am definately doing that right now.

jillchap Says... 8 years ago

it looks amazing!! I can't even think of how I'd begin to do that!! GREAT work!!!

CarolAnn Says... 8 years ago

It looks great! I love the Lambeth method. What are you using for your instruction? I saw a great step by step tutorial once but can't remember where. It was on someone's website. Not the ugly two toned pics I've seen recently though. Someone doing a beautiful job. I can't wait to see your final product!

AuntEm Says... 8 years ago

O WoW! How Gorgeous!

AuntEm Says... 8 years ago

That is Beautiful! I REALLY like that top border. The Colors look nice too.

tcturtleshell Says... 8 years ago

Fantastic!! That's really a lot of work & time! Good luck!! I wanted to ask the same question CarolAnn asked.. is there a tutorial? I've wanted to learn this method. Oh.. are you using RI or BCI? I can't see using BCI, too soft.

cakemommy Says... 8 years ago

Thanks tc~it's definately royal icing. It can be done in buttercream but RI is highly recommended as it dries quicker and shows more definition. I am using my Joseph Lambeth book. Both of Toba Garrett's books feature her version of this style!

susanscakebabies Says... 8 years ago

Oh my gosh, it sure looks perfect to me!!! Beginner, ha! I can't wait to see the final cake! Good luck!

Phoov Says... 8 years ago

Very impressive~!

KonfectionKonnection Says... 8 years ago

You're doing just a lovely job! I'm enjoying watching the progression, and look forward to seeing the finished work! Good luck at the show!

angelas2babies Says... 8 years ago

WOW!! Stunning work.

bori74 Says... 8 years ago

I can't wait to see the end result. I have seen the other pictures and that is going to be beautiful! the best of luck to you.

mthiberge Says... 8 years ago

Great job cakemommy! I can't wait to see it all finished...remember to keep thinking outside the box and always look in your underwear drawer for insparation...LOL

tammiemarie Says... 8 years ago

What gorgeous string work! I love the color, too. Best of luck!

cakemommy Says... 8 years ago

Momkiksbutt Says... 8 years ago

susanscakebabies Says... 8 years ago

OMG just breathtaking! I am in total AWWW!!!

I looked at your website after one of your posts and I must say, your cakes are absolutely beautiful. Your attention to detail is remarkable.

jlh Says... 8 years ago

Exquisite work. ...and I LOVE that pink/purple color!

darcat Says... 8 years ago

Just beautiful !!!! The detailed work is great and I love the color. I would say you did more than just a pretty good job

cakemommy Says... 8 years ago

Thank you all! I am quite proud of myself. I was losing hope with that top tier. It was a last minute decision to add the scrolls and the curtain work. I wasn't about to rip off all that lattice...NO WAY! I had to salvage it somehow!

jelligirl Says... 8 years ago

amazing job!...is this a class that you are taking or are you doing this on your own...it is amazing work...i was looking at toba's book today and was getting daunted by the prospect of it....it is just beautiful!

val_nutrimetics Says... 8 years ago

I can't even begin to imagine how long this must have taken you! It is absolutely beautiful! Just WOW! :o

cakemommy Says... 8 years ago

Thank you! I am kind of depressed with it right now so I put it away. Never mind I leave for San Diego in 8 days! I have to drive down there with this thing.

Aimeestrange Says... 8 years ago

Absolutely AMAZING!!! This is the best take on the lambeth method i've ever seen.

cakemommy Says... 8 years ago

:oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: I am just a beginner! There are far superior decorators of the Lambeth method on here like ShirleyW for one! She has given me such great advice on this cake. I really appreciate your compliment Aimee! I'm so embarrassed!

dyna Says... 8 years ago

Wow, that is SO pretty very nicely done I wish my cakes looked like that must have taken a very long time

grams Says... 8 years ago

You are going to show us the finished cake after the show,Right? I have really loved seeing what you have done so far. It is gorgeous.

cakemommy Says... 8 years ago

Oh I will definately show what the final looks like. I'll post after set up and before awards placements. I know I am not going to place because Foreign Technique is a tough tough category with professionals. I am an amateur decorator but will be place in this category regardless because it is a FT! I have no hope but hey, I wanted to do the cake anyway.

Momkiksbutt Says... 8 years ago

Is this the one you said you were hoping to get to San Diego in one peice?? Holy Sugar cones batman!!! I bow to your superior work!!! ;)

oritdecor Says... 8 years ago

Let me tell you I am very picky and a perfectionist and I will not place a cake I don't love in my display freezer,I just love your work and I am crazy about any lace work I can't really make straight lines but I'm practicing I envy your level. This is what I call BEAUTIFUL

susanscakebabies Says... 8 years ago

Wow, Just WOW!!

fooby Says... 8 years ago

As I've said, I AM NOT WORTHY!!! Holy Moly Guacamole!! ;-D :lol:

cakemommy Says... 8 years ago

Fooby, you're so silly! You've got the itch! Just practice!!

oritdecor Says... 8 years ago
