Royal icing quilling

post #1 of 45
Thread Starter 
Hi,
Does any one have any idea about quilling with royal icing to make those beautiful scrols showed in some cakes? I have checked the forum but all of them were for fondant modeling, and I have also seen them in royal icing.
Thanks

Do you definatly mean quilling, and not just scroll work? Can you link to a picture? I've only ever seen quilled cakes done with gumpaste (and or fondant), I don't think it could be done with ri.

Hi there, this is what we used to call lace and filligree and flood work. I did load of this 20 years ago, before styles changed

If you can get hold of any of Kate Venter, Nicholas Lodge or Eddie Spence books on royal icing, these people are all experts in this type of work. Have a look on Amazon, I got Kate Venters and Nicholas Lodges Books, for 1penny plus Postage. Or maybe your local library could get copies.

The Art of Sugarcraft Lace and Filligre by Nicholas Lodge

The Kate Venter Sugar Art Collection

Royal Icing by Eddie Spence (this is a new book just out)

Hope this helps you

This book Royal Icing by Eddie Spence is amazing, however it doesn't have anything on quilling unfortunately icon_sad.gif

It's still one of my favourite books though, well worth the money

Thanks a lot for your answers.
I will have a look for the books. These are technics that here in Spain you never see and I would like to try them. I´m sure it would be hard but with patience everything can achieved.
Thanks a lot for your help.

Looking at it, I really think that it's a combo of royal icing piping, rolled out and cut quilled strips in gum paste, pastillage, or mexican paste, and run out collars (Nirvana).

Wow, that is amazing. But, I don't see how you could possibly do that whole thing in royal. I would think it is a combination of gumpaste and royal. Gosh, can you imagine the work that went into that piece. I wonder how many pieces broke before he got the piece completed. Yikes.

Here are some similar style tiara toppers made from royal icing at Karen's Cakes. See the layers? If you look really close that topper above has those.

Hi,
Thanks for the links.
I also thought that with several layers it woudl work but, what about the sharp edges? On the tiara the edges are round and on the scrols of the topper they are sharp. Can you see it?
Anyway, I guess that it would do with a lot of practice.

The ends of the scrolls (especially noticeable in the top curves of the uppermost scrolls) are not as if they were cut which makes me believe they weren't made of gumpaste/sugarpaste/pastillage.

They could have been made either by overpiping as done with the tiaras just with a finer tip and more precisely laid. They can also be made in the same fashion as royal icing or chocolate bow loops. I'd wager they were overpiped though.
