How do I do that wavy thing on the top of the cake? - Page 2

post #16 of 25
I would love to know as well...
They did a cake something like that on the FN one time, but just quickly showed it and never got any hints or tips on how they did it...
Good luck!

If you look closely, there is very little if any actual carving done on this cake. The waves and curves are done in the fondant/modeling chocolate. It looks like she started with a topsy-turvy cake and then put curvy ropes on the sides and covered. There's some build up on opposite edges of each tier where the top piece of fondant meets the side piece. Then the edges are curved and highlighted. icon_confused.gif Yep - doable.

this is how i have achieved the effect that OP desired: you wrap the bottom with fondant with enough overlap (for second step) then you drape a second piece of fondant with enough overlap to meet/match the 1st piece. You manipulate both pieces so that they meet and match and then either flip upside down and continue to mold as you wish or mold and prop with objects (your choice-I used clean bubble wrap) into the wave shape you want. Hope this helps-if you look at the post that submitted photos you can see the steps, more or less. good luck

Oooow my god, I am so flattered to see you all checking out my Swirly cake icon_smile.gif I got some "Irregular blogtraffic) coming from this thread. How cool is that icon_wink.gif
I have had many requests on how I do it. But I am currently teaching this technique in The Netherlands an Belgium and it would not be fair to my students to show how I did it. I may come to the USA somewhere soon too teach....Who knows....

I did get inspired by Margaret Braun icon_wink.gif

You can find all my swirly's in my portfolio here or on my blog. icon_wink.gif

Thank you for noticing me icon_smile.gif I am flattered!

Love your blog, but I can't get it turned over to English! Not sure what I'm doing incorrectly. Can you assist please? Thanks

Well, just tried it again and it still seems to work. Just open any page of my site, you will see the translate option in the right colomn. You have to select English as your language, and it should translate. I am afraid it won't be perfect english, but at least you should be able to understand something.

Is this what you did??

I signed in on facebook, and the bar across the top is in English and your little paragraph to the side is in English but the rest isn't translated. Oh well, I'll just look at the great cakes and see if I can work my way thru them. You're very talented!
