Stencils

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
Is it possible to use a stencil on a cake iced in SMBC or IMBC? If so, how? Can an airbrush be used? I have a cake to do that I REALLY want to use a stencil on and I was trying to see if I could avoid using a crusting BC and fondant. Any other options that I don't know about? TIA

Gee, sorry no one has been able to help you.....have you finished this cake?
If you airbrush yes, it can be done....just place a priece of tulle (netting) between the icing and the stencil. It should work but I have never tried it on IMBC or SMBC.

thanks for the reply - although you have never done it, have you ever seen it? Does it look good?

I've only ever used a stencil on crusting BC. I can't imagine how to use a stencil on non-crusting icing w/out the stencil sticking.

I would refrigerate the icing till its solid then try the stencil. First i would practice on a back of a pan.

I was going to suggest putting it in the freezer first to get the icing hard. Then proceed as usual.

However, I haven't actually *done* it, so I don't know if it would work.

I have put it into the fridge and the icing hardens, but if I touch it, it will still smudge. I guess I will have to try the freezer. Now the next question is: since the color is going to be a deep red (see my stencil cake) on white, will the airbrush color 'bleed' once the cake defrosts?

OK jmo, but as I was thinking about this.. What is the color going to stick too?.. I would think it would bead up on smbc (lots of butter) and especially when it thaws. Bc has some body to it with powedered sugar to stick to.. Am I totally off here ? icon_confused.gifdetective.gif

bcake1960 - I am assuming that you are referring to the airbrushing? I have no idea! I have never used an airbrush before and not sure. But don't people who use regular BC (w/o shortening) airbrush their cake?

Now I am REALLY confused....wah!!! icon_sad.gif

Actually I have used my techinque (tulle) on non dairy icing - Frostin Pride and non crusting b'cream just have never made IMBC or SMBC.

I would love to know how this turns out..because between not crusting, and I think it WILL bleed and bead up, I just don't think it can be done.

I have done the Damask stencil on IMBC. It turned out wonderful and I stenciled black on to a white cake.

First DO NOT FREEZE the cake! When the frosting starts to thaw you'll get water beads. This is how I did mine.

Refrigerate the cakes until the iceing is hard, then take one cake out at a time and stencil one side. Put back in the fridge. Take the next cake out and sencil one side, put back in the fridge. Continue untill all cakes and sides have been stenciled. I would not recomend airbrushing.

Any questions, please ask.
