Ive just got an order for a wedding cake and the bride sent me the photo of a cake she saw on ourweddingday website.
It's a fabulous cake and i'm very excited at the challenge of recreating such a masterpiece, my only concern is the scrollwork involved.
Can anyone pls tell me how to go about it? i don't even know what kind of template to use to get this particular scroll work, what nozzle to use and what is better royal icing or buttercream? i know i'll be covering the cake in fondant tho. Any suggestion and advice will be greatly appreciated.
I know that there are patterns out there for this type of scrollwork. I always freehand it though.
I'm not a good piper and I would probably use a pattern or something because I don't think I can do it free hand, but I have never try it before.
The trick for this piping to look so nice is to make sure that it starts thick and become very thin at the end.
Maybe practice for a wild on board or something.
Check out the side cake design stencils at DesignerStencils dot com - look at the first one on page two of Cake Sides called Scrollwork, item number C001. Very similar - you could stencil with royal and add a few flourishes of your own.
Thank you ever so much, i have had a look at the site and even found how to do it videos, i have to contact them and ask how much postage will be to the UK. Thank you very much, i knew i could count on you all on CC to help out, you r the best!
You can also check the template sections in the galleries, I know I have saved a couple types of scroll work from there. That is a beautiful cake... good luck!
Hi everyone, i have made the wedding cake!. Thanks a lot to everyone who replies and most expecially ibmoser for the designerstencil website, i ordered the stencil and they delivered to the UK on time.

Nice Job, what are the flowers made out of??
The flowers were made using a combination of flowerpaste and fondant, 50-50 measurement, don't know what you call flowerpaste in the US tho.. gumpaste?
That is beautiful! some day I hope to make flowers cas beautiful as that. by the way what cutters did you use?
WOW! It turned out GREAT ! You did a BEAUTIFUL job !

And ibmoser, thank you, thank you, thank you. That site is great. I can't pipe worth POOP! but this site gives me many more options
Again THANK YOU!!!
wow! that cake is awesome! you did a great job. the scroll work and the flowers are fantastic!
What a great job. The cake is wonderful
Your cake is absolutely beautiful!
Your cake came out beautifully!
Thanks everyone, i used a large rose petal cutter, the trick is to roll the paste really thin and soften with a ball tool, putting a little more pressure to make the petals ruffle.
Thanks for your comments, an dyour help could not have done it without you all
