Modern Piping »
InstructionsThe image for the family crest was found on the internet, then I used the skills from the Modern Piping Course to execute the cake.
Category: Cake Decorating
Type of item: Food
What was your inspiration?
To pipe the Clan Crest on the cake.
What are you most proud of?
Overall, I think I was reasonably good at reproducing the image and my lettering was evenly spaced and much neater than I anticipated.
The cake was yummy - citrus, white chocolate mud with a white chocolate ganache. The top was a sheet of fondant which was supposed to look a bit like sheet of paper with the crest piped in chocolate brown royal icing.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
What did I learn:
Be prepared for adverse weather conditions which will completely ruin all of your work! Piping in very humid condition is almost impossible. Learn to accept the bleeding and move on?!?!?
I was very sad to see all my work bleed all over the cake, but my family were very gracious and still thought it was fabulous. I think it helped that it tasted pretty good too.
