Beautiful !!!! Very neat, love it. You should submit your method in the "How to method" on the home page.
I have not found that section on this forum yet. Thanks. I'll ck it out later. This is a rather large site! LOL.
That is so clean!! Good job!
I love it! Very smooth!
Thanks. It's very time consuming, but I really like the brushed effect.
Can you explain the brushed effect? I really like this!!
what a perfect cake!
I guess the brushed effect is really my own term. I do the outline, then fill in the design with a #12 and "brush" it with a pastry type brush after I get about 4 inches or so (or an area) filled in. Then tap it down with my finger after it sets. Or you can place a sheet of wax paper over it and smooth it w/your finger to get an even smoother effect (but I was in a hurry w/this cake, so I didn't bother w/that). Thanks!
SheilaF - I loved your method so much, I used it on the last babyshower pooh cake. It is posted under baby showers. Thanks for such a wonderful idea, Your cake is awesome!!
You did a great job on Pooh! This is the only method i use for these cakes now. Or, I sometimes do a FBT using the cake insert as a template since I've learned the FBT technique :)
In a scale of 1-10, I would give this cake a 20!!!! It's just so neat and beautiful. Excellente job.
Wow, thank you. That's the best compliment I've ever gotten :)
Oh Sheilaf you've started something now!! This cake is quite impressive. Saved it to my favorites and can't wait to practice your brush technique! You are definitely a decorating innovator!!
Wow, thanks! I used to do my art on paper/canvas. My dad says I transfered my mediums to cakes and frosting :)
It's beautiful........do you realize how many hands you're going to save from cramping (piping all those stars) when word gets out!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL
LOL. I never thought of myself as the inventor of a new technique. It just seemed logical to me to pipe it in. Thanks. I definitely enjoy the character pans more with this technique and also doing FBCT's (just use the cake insert as a template for those).
I love it! I'm not a fan of the piped stars personally, so this is even a bigger hit with me!!
Finally, the mystery is solved! I've been wondering how to do the character pans without having to do them covered in stars, it sometimes makes them look almost "fuzzy" lol. But I was afraid to try to ice them smooth, I can't WAIT to try this now!! Thank you Thank you Thank you :D ;-D
Glad I could provide you with some inspiration. Be sure to share how it comes out!
awesome job....do you think this technique would work with the old superman/batman cake pan? I'd like to try it.
It works well with all the character pans that I've done. I'm sure it would.
I love this. I can't wait to try this technique instead of all those stars!
Thanks. Check the 6th post down for how I do them :)
that looks great! and probably easier than doing all stars! I'll have to remember this for the next time.
great job I would love to hear more about your technique
wow! this looks great! oh, you've done it, now! now everyone's gonna line up for one!
Thanks. I use this technique on all my character cakes anymore. They seem to be a big hit when I do one :)
Such a fantastic job! Going into my favorites!
it has such a 3 dimensional look to it. fabulous
Thanks. I never realized how popular this technique was going to become when I first started doing it! :)
I love doing shaped pans, but tire of stars-this is awesome looks a lot more professional--kudos to you!
