I want to show a friend a cake using the method where you pipe a line of large dots down the side in frosting and then pull each one to the side and then repeat all the way around, but I have NO idea what that technique is called so don't know what to search for. Anyone know what I'm talking about, have done it, and loaded a picture on here? Thanks! I'm going crazy trying to find one and sifting through over 100,000 images...um...takes a little while.
I've seen a tutorial on it but it has been a while so I don't remember where. Here's one I did about a year ago. http://www.cakeswebake.com/photo/marilyn-s-bday-cake-1/next?context...
If I remember right I used a #10 tip and the end of my spatula to pull the dot out. You can use a spoon also for wider pulls.
It is called petal effect.... go on facebook and look up Ni Cakes, I believe she is a member here also. She has an album called Short foto tutorials and it is on there. I love that look and have used it.
petal technique. it is usually used for a ombre cap. I think you can find a video on you tube. I di a version and the cake is in the photo gallery at yummyarts.com
Thanks everyone. I sent her some examples and we've decided to go with a different look after all. I'll be covering her cake with " rose petals" instead. Sigh - that's a lot of work.
