I love the effect of the painting/drawing as on this cake: http://cakecentral.com/gallery/2059455/hand-painted-black-and-white-wedding-cake. Does anyone know what it is called? I would like to read up on it but haven't been able to find anything. I found lots of examples, but no instructions or demos.
Thanks in advance for the help!
Hi, that is a beautiful cake. I seen it the other week. I know if you p/m this person, they will be more than happy to tell you. I do this all the time when i want and need to know something. lol!!
It looks like gelpaste (mixed with vodka)painted with a small fine tip brush(artist brush)
The description says it is hand-painted. The design is called flourishes (or scrolls, but not so much in the cake biz). See:
she says she drew the pattern and also used petal dust and vodka
Thanks for the replies Flourishes are what I kept running across, and tattoo drawings. Guess I will start downloading flourishes and print some out to practice with
