This pdf template is designed to help you layout the beautiful "Scales Like Tiles" pattern on the cake pictured above. This is for the lined template only. There are written directions within the pdf on how to use the wax paper transfer method to execute the design, but I am assuming you have already taken my first class, "Clean & Simple Cake Design" and understand how to use the wax paper transfer method. If you'd like to take the class, here's a link for 50% off (http://www.craftsy.com/cakedesign). In this pdf packet, you will receive THREE layout designs for a 4" and 6" cake in this pattern. The only differences is the spacing between the scales. You will receive patterns which include 1/8", 3/16" and 3/8" spacing. I also include several colored options to show you how color variations can effect the overall pattern and look of the cake. You may use this template/design on a fondant, ganached or buttercream covered cake. If using buttercream, the cake must be chilled and firm in order to press on the design. The cutter I use for this template is from Not Just Cakes By Annie: "Scales Pattern Cutter" Click HERE: http://shop.notjustcakesbyannie.com/scale-pattern-cutter/ NOTES: 1. This pdf does NOT include information on how to create the wafer paper flower. This pdf is ONLY to provide you with the template to create the Scales Like Tiles pattern on the center tier. This is not a tutorial...you are buying a lined design (see pictures above to show you what you are buying). 2. There will be a seam in the back of the cake with this design. Due to set cutter sizes and various cake circumferences, you will not have a perfect, continuous design. Please use this template with that in mind. Have fun and please post pics so I can see all the fun you are having with these templates! :) Blessings! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Stack, fill, crumb coat a cake to a smooth finish or cover a cake in fondant.
