Thanks for the instructions! Is the black and white wedding cake here done this way? I would have sworn it was airbrushed. looks airbrushed to me also! You can see the lighter/darker areas of the color! Either way, it's a fantastic cake!
A video showing the stenciling on the sides would be great.
Is there a video on how to transfer an image to a Buttercream cake? (hand drawn image)? Would love to see a video on that.
If you want the stenciling on the sides with buttercream just follow the same method thats in the how to stencil on fondant on the sides.
Hello I would the instruction on how to do this cake. thanks
I have just come to this site and am loving it so far...this video is amazing and I will try this on a cake before long...My problem is I want to try everything and I don't need all those cakes..thanks for the info
The B&W cake has that air brushed look to me too. Speaking of the cake in the video though. That has to be the worst job building a cake I've seen. It isnt that hard to make nice straight sides and a flat top. Maybe it was to illustrate how versitile the stencel product is.
Thank you for such a good information,Coach bady diaper bagI really like your blog,I hope you can continue to keep well.
I recently attempted this on a cake and had major problems with the royal icing bleeding under the stencil. I saw on an episode of "Amazing Wedding Cakes" that the girls at Cake Girls in Chicago also had this problem when trying to stencil a checker board pattern on a cake. they never fixed the problem. They just ended up using fondant instead. Anyone have any suggestions???
Buttercream in the fridge???? Wouldn't that cause sweating after you remove it?????
I can't see the video. Are they all not working
