Amazing cake vertical stripes

post #1 of 56
Thread Starter 
This is a cake from "Baking Arts" ( a cooking school in San Francisco CA) it is white modeling chocolate wrapped cake with horizontal stripes.

Do you guys have any idea on how to do this?
Thanks!

First, these are horizontal stripes, not vertical. icon_biggrin.gif

This has been discussed many times. The creator of this technique has been smart enough to keep it to himself. Our loss!

what about those transfer sheets? I'm trying to remember where I saw them. I know country kitchens has them but they're not horizontal. maybe you can find them elsewhere? I don't if CC will let me post this link. If not, just search for county kitchen sweet art on yahoo and the page will come up. they have a picture on the home page.

I guess the stripes could be painted on. I just read a post about mixing powdered color with melted cocoa butter. It said after mixing it, you could paint on chocolate with it. I think it might work. You'd just have to make sure your lines were really straight. Just taking a guess... It is a very fun looking cake to try and copy.

It's a nice cake regardless of whether it is horizontal or vertical icon_biggrin.gif
You could probably experiment with fondant stripes. The only problem with that is you're going to have to make certain your markings are perfect as I would imagine if the lines are not perfectly straight it is going to be the only thing noticed on the cake.

Wouldn't you do it the same way you would with fondant or polymer clay? By adhering it to a base color then running it through a sheeter/pasta roller?

Chocolate clay works like polymer clay...pretty much attaches to itself.

Anytime I want to mess with it, I refer to Sculpey.com for many MANY ideas....awesome site should you decide to get into sculpting chocolate/candy clay!

I used to make chocolate bows which were striped, white chocolate and regular chocolate. We used a plastic strip and painted it with the regular chocolate and let it set until thick but not hard, then took a special comb and ran it the length of the strip, removing the chocolate in strips. We then let it set up completely. Once the chocolate was hard, we covered it with a layer of the white chocolate, letting it fill in the removed strips. Once that had set up some, we applied it to the cake and removed the plastic strip. The result was a chocolate strip with white chocolate stripes. I am sure you could do it that way using different colors of the white chocolate. The finished strip is completely flat that way and looks great.

These ideas may be a stretch but could you-

A- achieve that look from the edible printer? Print on the sheet and wrap around the cake?

or

B- do the fondant transfer technique and wrap that around the cake?

My only other thought is that they have some special printer, like the one that prints directly on the cookie. Maybe that is how they get it so precise?

Dunno, just some thoughts from my sleep deprived brain... icon_rolleyes.gif

ETA: doesn't someone make stencils like that? They say it is white chocolate maybe a stencil with colored chocolate or cocoa butter?
