Vertical line cake?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi ladies
I'm wondering if anyone has done a vertical line cake similar to this:

http://www.couturecupcakes.com.au/2013/03/alyssas-1st-birthday.html?m=0

And if so how you did it? My first thought was to use a ruler or something to indent the lines into the fondant after it's been applied to the cake, would this work or just tear through th fondant? Does anyone have any tips on getting perfectly straight even lines?

Thanks in advance!

i think an extruder has been used... there's a shape that's round on one side and flat on the other. hope this helps!

Thanks for the tip! I never even thought of that! Hopefully I can find a cheap extruder! (that actually works)

It's never "just cake!"

 

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!

The site indicated that they are strips of fondant.  One way to make this would be to cut a wide piece of fondant to wrap around the cake.  Then, attach all of your strips to the fondant while it is flat on the table.  This would allow you to arrange them perfectly.  Then attach the whole thing to the cake.  Cover the seam with the last strip.

Jessica Harris has a wonderful tutorial on Craftsy that details the wax paper transfer method of applying stripes (or any other graphic design) to fondant.  It's a very easy and straightforward method that produces perfect results.  Check it out!

This sounds like the best way, so you don't have a double layer of fondant on the cake.

On her blog Jessica Harris shows how to use waxed paper to apply this sort of design.

 

And YES the Makin's extruder is the way to go.

Life begins at 325° F, and, yes, that IS powdered sugar in my hair.
