There seems to be a better view of the overpiping in the second picture of Cakes by Joanna

You are right, it is possible to see the layers in that photo, I did not notice it before, thanks a lot. I guess that for getting the sharp edge look, the icing should be very hard.
Thanks a lot for pointing it out.
Best regards.

NO the icing should not be very hard. You can learn how to do that by taking a PME course in RI. Those are called poured collars and she has worked the RI around it. She has also done an overly of RI in some areas but not all. If you check on youtube and search "thefoodcourt cake decorating" there is a lady her name is Elaine MacGregor and she shows you have to do a lot of things with RI and other methods of cake decorating that you would learn with a PME course. Good luck and let me know if you need any help.

For the scrolls, a nice medium consistency icing, strained through a well cleaned stocking (I use support stockings, they have a tighter weave), small tubes, a dampened paint brush nearby to tidy up edges (also good to help reposition lines should a slight adjustment be needed, and most of all patience.

Sharp points are likely aided by a dampened paint brush. I'm sure there are those who can manage them without using the dampened paint brush but I find it to be necessary.

I doooooooo!

I think, creating the design or finding various techniques and where to use them on a piece is almost as time consuming as the actual work on them. I want to do a grand piece so badly!

Ohhhh so do I All4cake. Hell, I'll do it for free if someone I know would just ask me icon_redface.gif . I really miss it. I'd do dummy cakes but then I can't bring myself to kill them and start again. I get very attached to my designs..you had to see me before I retired.....I was really hard to walk away from the venue and leave my cake there icon_cry.gif. I think I need help LOL.

I just spent the last two hours with a wonderful person and a double batch of royal icing. She wanted me to show her how I make miniature roses. Now, I have quite a bit of USED royal icing. I think I'm going to prep some dummies (or at least 1 anyway) and get a start on a grand piece (at least I'll be moving toward it, right?)

all4cake, I took a look at your pictures. You do PIPING!
I love piping so-o-o much more than fondant on a cake...

I'm always torn between staring at it, and falling into it mouth first and eating my way back out like a cartoon character.

This book was mentioned earlier in this thread and I just bought it -- The Art of Royal Icing by Eddie Spence -- and let me tell you, it is AMAZING!! I've never seen work done like that and I own a ton of ancient cake decorating books!! I highly, highly, highly recommend it to any interested in royal icing work! icon_biggrin.gif
