I would like to decorate a cake with brushed embroidery. What is the technique? Does it need to be made with royal icing? Then what happens when you cut it? Does it just fall apart? Is there some where to get a pattern for those beautiful roses I have seen on cakes here? Any help would be appreciated.
It's really easy to do. I tried it for the first time on a picture of a motorbike and I was surprised how easy it was. If your cake is iced in non-crusting bc, just remember to use a light touch with the brush!
Thank you guys SO much...I need to do this technique on a cake in two weeks!
I did mine on crusted buttercream using buttercream. I just piped the flower border, then brushed toward the center. Some use a wet brush, but I usd dry.
We used RI on fondant: http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1559561&sub=1559567
To get shapes you can use a cookie cutter and just make a light impression, then pipe over the impression left behind. Then do your brush work.
Thank you to all of you! You guys are so helpful! I am looking forward to doing this cake!
Don't forget to post a picture for us to see.
i use bc, with bc, just be sure and make your outline thicker, i also bought some brushed at the dollar store and didn't realize how stiff they were so i took scissors at cut into the ends give me varied length's at the tip of the flat brush works great. also make sure you bc has crusted, u-tube has some good videos
