Beautiful !!!! Very neat, love it. You should submit your method in the "How to method" on the home page.

SheilaF Says... 9 years ago

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!

JustJaimeLyn Says... 9 years ago

I love it! Very smooth!

SheilaF Says... 9 years ago

Thanks. It's very time consuming, but I really like the brushed effect.

cakemommy Says... 9 years ago

Can you explain the brushed effect? I really like this!!

butrcup Says... 9 years ago

what a perfect cake!

SheilaF Says... 9 years ago

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!!

SheilaF Says... 9 years ago

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 :)

awela Says... 9 years ago

In a scale of 1-10, I would give this cake a 20!!!! It's just so neat and beautiful. Excellente job.

SheilaF Says... 9 years ago

Wow, thank you. That's the best compliment I've ever gotten :)

cocopuff Says... 9 years ago

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!!

SheilaF Says... 9 years ago

Wow, thanks! I used to do my art on paper/canvas. My dad says I transfered my mediums to cakes and frosting :)

KHalstead Says... 9 years ago

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

SheilaF Says... 9 years ago

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).

KarenOR Says... 9 years ago

I love it! I'm not a fan of the piped stars personally, so this is even a bigger hit with me!!

cakesbgood Says... 9 years ago

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

SheilaF Says... 9 years ago

Glad I could provide you with some inspiration. Be sure to share how it comes out!

CareyAnn Says... 9 years ago

awesome job....do you think this technique would work with the old superman/batman cake pan? I'd like to try it.

SheilaF Says... 9 years ago

It works well with all the character pans that I've done. I'm sure it would.

cncgirl00 Says... 8 years ago

I love this. I can't wait to try this technique instead of all those stars!

SheilaF Says... 8 years ago

Thanks. Check the 6th post down for how I do them :)

zoraya Says... 8 years ago

that looks great! and probably easier than doing all stars! I'll have to remember this for the next time.

giggysmack Says... 8 years ago

great job I would love to hear more about your technique

dawngoddess7 Says... 8 years ago

wow! this looks great! oh, you've done it, now! now everyone's gonna line up for one!

SheilaF Says... 8 years ago

Thanks. I use this technique on all my character cakes anymore. They seem to be a big hit when I do one :)

cakesonoccasion Says... 8 years ago

SheilaF Says... 7 years ago
