My money's on her not telling.

The woman does some beautiful work!

O.K I emailed her. Let's see what happens. I emailed Sylvia Weinstock this A.M. and she emailed me within the hour. It was about cake boxes with a separate lid. She just uses boxes from a box company.

Hi,
you know, It does not mention Martha Stewart anywhere..that might be a different Martha.. sometimes bakers give their cakes names..
I apologize if I am wrong.. icon_smile.gif

I had not thought of that. You may be right. Thanks to fearless baker for emailing Martha...Please let me know what she says. I had planned on do this...but I'll wait for your answer.

Sylvia Weinstock isn't worried about competition. icon_smile.gif This lady might be. Or she might just be too busy to answer emails with instructional information. I would be surprised if she answers, but I certainly hope she does! I can't get a good detailed look at the technique with that small picture.

That lady's name is Christy, not Martha.

I tried to magnify the pic to get a better look. It looks like she used some kind of tool to put a divot on the sides. like a knife or something like that or one of those tools you use to cut a fruit to get the points. Sorry - I'm no help!!

Although, I am doing a square cake with a basket weave today, maybe I'll give it a shot!

That's amazing. Just gorgeous. I haven't even learned the regular basketweave yet! (Final course II is on Monday) icon_redface.gif I wonder if they will share their secrets.

Oh, a garnishing tool....I have some of those. I have a cake to do today that I can play around with.

Good idea! icon_biggrin.gif

all we can do right now is come up with our own "analysis"..
Probably she used an ordirnary flat tip, then kind of twist the tip together with the icing bag half way to the end of the "weave"... you know like when you have a pc. of ribbon, then you twist one end, icon_smile.gificon_confused.gificon_smile.gif

Yeah, that thing! I'm gonna try too. I think I'll wait 'til it crusts a bit, then mark off some lines and then apply it in an upward motion. We'll see.....

I guess I just assumed that she (Christy) ment Martha Stewart. I was going to try Martha Stewart to see if she could give me the instructions. I did email Christy...as I posted before. Maybe I should just try calling her. I just didn't want to bother her about that on the phone.

Thanks again for all the help, suggestions & guesses!

Hi, I just copied the photo into my Corel Draw program so I could enlarge it. It goes blurry when enlarged a lot, but this design is so precise, I'd be more inclined to think that it is an impression mat rather than piping. Janice

I think this was made with one of the embossing rolling pins on fondant. It just doesn't look like fondant because or the lighting. Go to Sugarcraft and under gumpase and fondant look under tools. It will say "Rolling Pins, Textured." Look there and there are plenty.
then if you want try and find Modern Bakery. They seem to have a lot of stuff of interest dealing with fondant and mats etc. Please, let me know what you think.

I vote that it's an impression mat or pin, too. Waaaayyy too perfect to be piping!! lol icon_razz.gif But it sure is beautiful! icon_wink.gif
