I think it was in the American Cake Decoating June/July 2006 magazine. The magazine was at a friends house. Right inside the front cover there is a pink cake with what looks like sprayed on insulation or what some call "a popcorn ceiling". Does anyone know how to do this? I think the light effect on the cake was very pretty. Thanks for any help.

I don't have the magazine in front of me, but it sounds like you'd just put a spatula or the back of a spoon on the icing before it crusted over and pull it up and down on the surface of the cake to raise the little spackly-bump (the technical term, I'm sure) texture.

Since I don't have the photo as a reference, I can only guess...

I do know that I got a similar effect spraying cocoa butter on chocolate with a Wagner paint sprayer ... but I'm not sure that's what you're looking for.

I got out my magazine, it was an ad for Wilton gumpaste. If you go to, look in the wedding cake designs and you'll find the exact cake. It's called Stucco Trio and the stucco effect is done by dipping crumpled up waxed paper into royal icing and blotting it on the cake. The complete instuctions are there.

Here's the link on Wilton's site:

I hadn't seen this before. I definetly want to give it a try.
