Does anyone know how to get the effect of 3D vertical stripes on this cake? Thanks![postimage id="4811" thumb="900"]
this has come up before -- I think you press a straight edge against the cake -- you would want to do something (that I can't remember) to ensure nice straight lines -- but after that they eyeball it -- if memory serves
It looks like tubes done with an extruder
I think Elizabeth is right on. That is soooo perfect it would be difficult no matter how it's done. Well at least for me itwould be :)
I don't think rolling out by handwould be a good idea though. Too difficult to get them all uniform.
yes, clay extruder with the larger round hole, let them air dry for about 20 minutes, roll the ends so they're a little tapered, like the pictures.
maybe it was impress the surface with a straight edge in various places so you can keep all the rolls/sausages straight? I seem to recall the top edge being cut off all nice & straight --
elizabeth -- if you want uniform sausages -- roll them between dowel that are the same size -- easy peasy
I've done that before but never got that perfect
you can do it!!
I've started using a fondant smoother for it, I'd probably have better luck now.
It's either tubes or this type of texture mat, I've seen a few of them: https://www.etsy.com/listing/273290822/katy-sue-designs-grooves-silicone
There are different widths
640Cake is absolutely right. This question came up before and the lady who actually made this cake said that she used a strip cutter to emboss the lines.
Personally, I'd put a thicker layer of fondant on the cake and use a straight edge to emboss the lines in. Then cut the top edge flush with a scalpel or sharp knife.
Failing that, contact the original decorator and ASK.
I checked the original site....they said these stripes were embossed...I think the Katy Sue Groove mat would give the closest outcome
