wave cake

post #1 of 39
Thread Starter 
Hey out there,

Does anyone know how to do a wave cake?? It's where the top of the cake is uniformly wavy. I really don't know how to put it into words. There is a picture of one here on CC, but the decorator said she was not at liberty to share how to do it. Hoping someone might know.

Thanks,
Lori

Checkout Suuz0808's photos - gorgeous work! Like an exaggerated Margaret Braun undulating wave that is cut to the center instead of just around the edge. Suuz - please do tell us how you do it. Beautiful!

I see the type you mean now (the first link to me to a removed page).
I think you just cut with a knife and cover with fondant.

What terms did you use in a search for a photo of that type of cake?
I've tried everything I can think of, and no luck.
edit: Found it - wavy taart . No luck yet on instructions, though.

I've never made one before so, my thoughts on it may be totally off the mark.

If you marked the top into an even number of equal sized sections, mark the side of the cake at every other one about an inch down from the top (more or less but make sure all are the same), carefully carve every other one into a "V" starting from the center of the cake at zero depth and cutting toward the outside to the depth of the mark made on the side (or vice versa). Remove that wedge but don't discard it. Once all are removed, ice the tops of the uncut sections and place a removed wedge, inverted onto each uncut, iced section (kinda like when ya make a topsy turvy). Crumbcoat to lock it all into place. continue at this point as you would with any other crumbcoated tier.

That is pretty much the way I did my experiment - I made additional divisions to try to keep my cuts more even and evenly spaced. I do not have a good "eye" for space and distance LOL. I hope that Suuz0808 will have some additional tips on this style - she has obviously mastered it thumbs_up.gif

one of those pie sectioners would be perfect for this, eh?
