Hi everyone, from all the amazing pictures ive seen on here, ive realised i dont think ive seen any cakes with piped RI flowers. ive seen some beautiful colour combinations in Peggy Porschen's books with daffodils, pansys, daisys and basic 5 petal flowers that im dying to try but i was wondering if they are really difficult as no-one seems to do them or are they just out of fashion - lol!
Out of fashion is more like it! I do them, people just don't ask for them. I think they are beautiful but I do like the realism of gumpaste better. I have a pic in my photos of a peach colored flower on a two tier white cake and some other beginner cakes with RI. I think they're easy to work with myself. Just easy to break. My snowflake xmas tree cake is also RI.
I use them alot. Take a look in my pictures
I use them also but like Gumpaste better they look more real
I love making flowers, I use buttercream though, not RI. Click the link below, I have a lot of videos showing how to make a lot of different kinds of flowers.
I wouldn't say out of fashion, just depends on who you're making the cake for.
Look thru my photos....many of mine are b'cream as I really dislike working w/royal. You can do almost the same flowers in b'cream......just a few need royal.....like daisies, daffodills, petunias...cupped stuff like that.
I used mostly petunias in my cakes..But basically people dont go for them as much..
Just saw some of your work on youtube-wonderful! Your sense of humour is very endearing!! lol...great work too btw!!
Thank you very much!!
I also saw the drop string one- loved it...you got me wanting to do it on my next one! Good job.
