I tried anyway... lol. You'll have to let me know if I came close to the effect that everyone is trying to figure out.

I posted a little photo with a diagram of how I did it on my facebook page if you are interested in seeing how I did it.

Here's a link to the cake on CC. http://cakecentral.com/gallery/1956907

Thank you for creating the tutorial! I am a visual person and that really
was a great way to see it. But the actual process was a ton of work making so many of those! Wonderful job and wonderful new technique. And I also can't believe you didn't WIN that competition! Beautiful work!!

Thank you for clarifying that! So, one method uses a blob in the center while the other just forms the pillow?

Thanks for sharing. thumbs_up.gif You've nailed this billowing effect. Both meithods are great, but you're seems somewhat simpler to for my level of cake decorating.

Thanks soooooooo much for sharing this with us.
