I have a wedding cake to do in three weeks and I have been racking my brain to figure out how to do a damask patter on buttercream. I really, really, really wish that the bride wanted fondant because I could stencil then, but she doesn't.
I have thought about piping it in royal icing, but I am not sure how I will get all of the pieces on the cake without going crazy doing it piece-by-piece.
Please, anyone, do you have any suggestions?
What about a bunch of little FBCTs? Is it black on white? The only concern I would have would be as the transfer thaws the color might run. But I've never stenciled or used a FBCT.
Stencil on the buttercream with royal icing thinned out. I've done it before. Just wait until the buttercream crust really well ( I like to refridgerate it to firm it up too) I dust my stencil with a little cornstatch so it helps keep it from sticking. Worked well for me. Or another option is the Cricut with gum paste. One of the cartridges has a Damask design.
