The tutorial is not on here. This is just her Facebook account.

You know, a while back, last summer maybe, a lady here on CC did a gorgeous dummy cake in pink using this very same "billowing" technique. I can't remember who she was though, I'm wondering it that's one of the two gals mentioned here though. Does anyone remember that?

just search "Susan Trianos General Mills" in the search field at the top of your facebook page. It comes right up. You can't see her wall though unless you are her friend. So I don't know if she has any kind of tutorial there. You can see her pictures and she has another great example of a cake with the billowing. I friend requested her and will let you know when she responds.

AHA I found it: http://cakecentral.com/gallery/1678457

My question is, after it was stolen (yes, some competitor STOLE her entry) icon_confused.gif was it ever retrieved?

To my knowledge it was never recovered. Not sure if the theives were ever caught either.

That's really horrible. I mean, really, would it kill them to ASK for instructions or TRY to figure it out themselves???? icon_confused.gif That's the second most horrible competition story I've ever heard. (The first being a lady who did very intricate stringwork on a cake and the hubby of her biggest competition came over and waved his arm in the direction of her cake, thus ruining the stringwork!) People are really slimy sometimes! icon_evil.gifthumbsdown.gif

Bob, i cant believe that somebody store her cake icon_eek.gif
looking at it close the billowing looks like strip that are puffed in the middle and pinched on the sides (did i explain it right?). I've seen the review about the magazine so i'll just drive about an hour out of my way and get the mag at my cake store when it comes out.

Looking closely at those pics, I wonder if it's not marshmallows, or something light like that, with little sheets of very thin gumpaste wrapped over it and pinched at the ends to kind of pleat the sides.

relznik, looking at this link, i do believe this is the technique used on the cake . I was thinking that was how it is done, using the dresden and veining tool. It sure looks the same.
