Inspired by a cake in Cynthia Venn’s book, “Smocking in Sugarpaste.” The materials used for this cake were royal icing, marshmallow fondant, and Nicholas Lodge’s recipe for gum paste.
I used a smocking roller and a pair of tweezers to create the “Chevron” pattern, and then piped on the side of the cake in royal icing.
Next, I had my first try at bridgework (I’ve wanted to try this technique for a long time!) I used a size 2 Wilton tip for the bridge and a size 0 PME tip for the extensions, hail spotting, and drop loops. I think I’ve piped this section at least 4 times over with various breaks during the hail spotting and drop loops!
The cake was then trimmed with gumpaste frills (more re-piping of extension work, grr!) and my first try at sugar ribbon inserts.
