Black and white fabric inspired cake

Project Description

Do you sell this cake? Yes Link to website or online shop www.wildorchidbaking.com Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake The black rose pattern was stamped on white fondant using gel food color. I used the same stamp to create a pattern on gum paste which I used to create some of the bow loops. the other patterns were created with texture mats. What are you most proud of? Using stamping to create a fabric feel for the bow loops. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Roll one loop at a time and be patient! It's better to go slow and have loops that you'll love, rather than rush and smudge the pattern.

What you will need

  • Buttercream
  • Fondant
  • Gum Paste

Sorry, just seeing this now! I don't get notifications on picture comments. I used a combination of methods. Premade stamps and my candy melt stamp method. Hope this helps!
