Wedding cake with lines on it help!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I am doing a wedding cake in Jan. and it has just buttercream lines all around each tier. Is there anything I can get to help my hand stay in place to get those lines perfect?

Make a stack of books or something for your elbow to rest on at the right right height for each line. Or magazines, they're thinner and easier to adjust height.

I'm sure there's a less ghetto way to do it, but that's what I do. icon_biggrin.gif

there is a tool...Wilton Cake Marker.  It has a little pin and you an put it at the height you want and it will mark a line (template) around the cake when spun on a turntable....if that would help.

She's asking how to keep her hand steady.
