I have a client wanting damask on her cake for next month. I've never done this technique before, so what is the best or easiest way to do this? My first and only guess is stencils, which I've tried for things other than damask and didn't have much luck (tho it was on buttercream so that made it more difficult I think).
I think most people use stencils for their demask print. There are also cookie cutter available out there. Stencil would work far better though I think.
If you do stencil, I HIGHLY suggest you practice a ton before doing the actual cake. Depending on the colors and if they want fondant or not will make the difficulty levels change drastically.
I used an edible image for the damask cakes I've made so far. Tried the stencils, but that was just one big mess
