Amazing cake vertical stripes - Page 2

post #16 of 56
I have a wedding cake magazine with a cake featured in it that looks a lot like that one. It was done by a place also in San Francisco called Cakework. I always wondered how it was done but never have had the time to play with it. It looks to me like it is candy clay or something similar because it has roses made out of it to. The colors are only on one side of it. In the picture you can see the backside of the wrap and it is white. I am wondering if she has someway to print the patterns onto the clay, similar to the way they print on the fondant paper wraps (like what Lucks has.) At first I thought it was like individual strips cut and then rolled together (like a wilton technique I saw once) but after I looked at it awhile I realized the color was only on the front. It could be the cocoa butter colors like someone else suggested but I really don't know how they get them so straight. If you are really interested I can try to scan in the picture. I doubt I have helped but it would be great to know how to do it.

My bad! It wasn't he that said it...the OP stated it was modeling chocolate.

I agree, just looking, first impression waas colored white chocolate painted on white chocolate wrap. The edges you can tell the colors are a tiny bit raised and not exactly perfect like a printer. Thats my guess. icon_cool.gif

Hi Jeanne! I thought it was a chocolate wrap to me but in their picture they describe it as chocolate clay.
Here is an other view of the top part of the cake and also a different cake with the same technique but different design.

They definitely use a printer on at least some of their stuff...

In the picture you can see the backside of the wrap and it is white. I would think that it is either printed onto the clay (like the printed edible fondant image wraps that Lucks sells) It it is done like someone else suggested that the colored strips are stuck to a white strip and then sent through a sheeter. But I think it would be hard to get the lines perfectly straight. If you are really interested or you think it would help I can try to scan the picture and post it here or email it to you.

laynie72, you can get that effect with the clay(plain on back, design on front, by using the sheeter method described in an earlier post.

Sorry I didn't mean for my reply to post twice. Oops!

It says in the flickr photostream under the photos that it's done with modeling chocolate. I am betting they roll out the white and then lay stripes of colors on top of it and run it through a pasta roller or a sheeter.

It also hinted at a possible tutorial when all the kinks are worked out.

I've seen a tutorial on this somewhere. It is different colors of candy clay on a white clay backing. I will keep looking and post if someone doesn't beat me to it.

I saw a video on a technique like this at my library. I'll try to find the name of the series. They did one just like Laynie posted, too.
