I'm going to be doing a white fondant wedding cake with a black damask print. Does anyone have any suggestions?? Any information or tips would be really helpful!!!!!
I do those quite a bit. I always use cutters. I have gazillions.
Cutters. Definately. Much cleaner look to it.
Jennifer Dontz (www.sugardelites.com) has a nice selection to choose from. She is supposed to be working on some new sets too!
I'm sorry, but I have to ask the question, do you use the cutters to cut the black fondant out and glue it to the cake? I have been asked to do a damask cake and I'm just trying to find the best way to do this. I've heard buttercream, then hand paint or airbrush it on. And then I'm hearing fondant and paint it on......I'm undecided.
Yes, you "glue" them on. I just brushed some water on the cut pieces - VERY LITTLE. Then pressed them onto the cake (I used fondant covered cake)
Loucinda, that site was great! Thanks for sharing!
You're welcome! (Jennifer is also awesome to deal with! - she is JenniferMI on here)
I use stencils and the secret is the consistency of the icing. For black damask I but the wilton black icing tube, I know....BUT is the PERFECT consistency, never bleeds or smears, and it dries fast.
I got this tip from sugarshack.
thank you all so much for your help and tips--you are all so kind and giving of your talents! It's because of all of you that this site is such a success-- I'm going to try both the stencils and the cutters. In your opinions do you feel that using white buttercream that crusts is better or using white fondant to cover the cake? I know that smoothing buttercream is not as perfect as fondant...... thank you all!!!
