Hi. I am a fairly new caker and I have a serious issue. I cannot, for the life of me nail the art of scrolls. With vision in head, bag in hand, and cake ready to be decorated I still somehow muck it up each and every time. My problem is that I don't have sequence or a "rhythem" so to speak. Looking at alot of the beautiful scroll work it seems as if there are repitions of c's and s's in different directions. My question to the masters or even intermediates would be- when you are applying your scrolls, what are you thinking? Are you purposefully repeating a pattern? Are you going solely off of memory? Do you have a picture with the scroll design in front of you as a guide? Drawing and art have never really been my "thing" but I am great when it comes to method. Please help me to incorporate some method into my madness!! Any tips and advice would begreatly appreciated.
