There instructions on how to do this cake in the book enchanted cakes by debbie brown

I won't say she invented the idea, but Colette Peters used this technique for more than one FN Challenge, and in one of them, they briefly showed how she did it.

Do they archive their challenge videos for later viewing?

I just thought of something. How about using the Wilton Garland Marker in different directions?

I never knew there were any reactions to my message, so I'm a bit delayed icon_smile.gif
I just sent a private message to dorie about my cakes, so i guess it's the nice thing to do to share it with you guys.

Here goes:

Hi Dorie!

Of course I can help you, I don't believe in keeping secrets All I ask in return is that you will be honest as to where you got this information.

A friend of mine posted an how to on a dutch forum. It's with pictures, so that's easy http://www.deleukstetaarten.nl.....?id=106789

I don't do it that way though. I always let the cake decide which shape it wants to be. For example a round cake often likes to be cut in a wavy with peaks, an hexagon shape is happy when all its 6 sides are the same

So I cut out some triangles, curves, half moons, big or small, and place them back on the cake just like the how to, although I try to vary my cut outs and shapes. Just play with it, it'll all come together in the end
When experimenting, make sure you smooth your uneven cut edges with your knife, so the wavy or peak motion is fluent without any sharp lumbs.
Also, I use a crusting buttercream in stead of what she used, because i like the texture much better. I put a large amount of bc on the cake and push it into the curves and sprea it out. It's easier to put lots on and then take off the acces. Just make sure the top is completely covered in an even yet thin layer. For the sides a crumbcoat will suffice.
Make sure the edges of the wavy shape are crips, because you need to cut your fondant along it. (This is very important, make sure you have a nice, clean cut!)
Then rolle a sheetof fondant along the sides and ct it about 1/4 inch above the edge. Wait about half an hour to cut it to fit, because it's easier to make a crips cut when the fondant has hardened a bit. Do the same on top and smooth with your fingertips.
Now here comes my trick, which I only give to my classes:
Brush the fondant on top with your fingers. Keep one finger flat on each side of a wave and brush it gently into a peak. Finalle smooth the sides of your cake with a smoother, smooth the top with a piece of fondant on your middle- and indexfinger.
Cover up the seam with pearls, flower or whatever and decorate as desired.

Oh, and I am Suuz from Holland

Have fun!

That's how Debby Brown does it, I never do that. Way too much work icon_smile.gif
By the way, that girl isn't me. She just asked if she could put this tutorial on the dutch forum, since these cakes are also very popular in Holland.

Have fun!

Can you give pics on how you do it? I looked at this and it really doesn't look like it is that much more work than other sculpted cakes. The toothpics I get. But if yours is quicker I'm all for less time with the cake so I can get right to the decorating. I just want to be able to get it so perfect. Your cakes are so wonderful!

I'm sorry, I don't have any pictures.
But you're right, it really isn't that mucht more work than any other sculpted cake.
I just do it "freestyle" without measuring every exact cut. The only thing I measure is the right distance on a round cake, but I usually just use an hexagon, square or flower shaped cakeboard under a round cake as a guideline. With other shaped cakes, I just use the cake itself as a guideline.... of course icon_smile.gif
Other than that, I just play with it and see what comes out icon_smile.gif
