Can anyone help with how to measure a cake to make evenly spaced swags? I have a huge wedding cake to do and the bride wants swag work on the sides.
(Yes, I know it's 2008!)
So....does anyone care to share how you do this?
I used to eyeball it and it worked out ok, but that comes with lots of practice (ok ok .... yes, I'm old! I cut my cake decorating teeth in the 70's/80's on swags on cakes!)
However ...... !
Country Kitchen has this really cool tool just for doing this!! http://www.countrykitchensa.com/catalog/product.aspx?T=1&ShopId=38&CatId=529&SubCatId=154&productId=621371 I have one and luv it!!
Hey thanks to both of you for that!! Why didn't I ever think of the parchment thing? I use parchment for all of my cakes, even a 2 inch round, lol. So I can just fold that and use it twice, hahahaa! Thanks!
Wilton also sells a garland marker and a cake dividing mat hereis the link.
I like the garland marker because it also helps keep all of you swags the same height.
