I remember a while ago there was a thread where someone had posted a link to a tutorial on how to do "smooth fondant stripes" like in the following picture... (cake belongs to franjmc on flicker). The tutorial was written in German i believe but had great pictures to illustrate how to do it. I have searched and searched and i can't find it and was dumb enough not to save the link...
Anyone happen to remember what thread or saved the link?
Just go through her flickr pics, written in german ( I think) but self explanatory. I have used it myself. either scroll forwards or back, cant remember.
I am sure this is the one you meant, right?
Thanks vcm_9! You are awesome, that was exactly what i was looking for! I have a practise cake baked to try it out on with the actual cake due next saturday. Wish me luck
GOOD LUCK...a;thpugh, it seems harder than it is. I tried it, but without my equiptment (I was interstate)...and it still turned out ok...a bit wonky though. Just try not to stretch the fondant, and keep pushing it back into a straight line. Oh, and keep the strips on the bench covered so they dont dry out. I forgot and couldnt smooth it properly once they were all on. (smoothing it with a birthday card cause you dont have your smoothers doesnt help either )
Out some pics up when you are fifnished!!
