For Fun: What technique do you want to learn? - Page 4

post #46 of 54
You're probably right! That and the fact that people aren't looking for that much icing on their cakes any more.

Lambeth is definitely a personal taste. I love it and do teach it (and have DVD on it). And if you learn properly, it doesn't cramp your hand. What cramps my hand is piping the grout for my floor tile, but that's another story icon_biggrin.gif

I also want to learn 3D standing figures....

1. Flooding with royal icing (planning on trying this weekend)
2. Airbrushing -have yet to buy the stuff
3. Making my own molds- oh the doors that would open up!
4. Covering a cake with fondant and having it look flawless - (practice, practice, practice)
I've learned so much from my mistakes..... I'm thinking of making a few more!

Yeah, I would definitely have to be pumped full of NSAIDs before attempting a Lambeth anything.

Making molds is really easy...the hard part is being able to afford the materials to make the molds!

I want to learn sugar blowing REALLY BAD! icon_biggrin.gif




Corn husk is something I'll definitely have to get my hands on. icon_biggrin.gif That sounds like a good general purpose one.

I've thought about that... but I think somewhere when I first started reading I got caught up in the whole "is it made for food?" safety obsession... but I'm not even making them to put on cake! So I think I should get over that phobia, lol!

As QTcakes said, so many of the veiners can be interchangeable. I just get caught up making them cause it is so much to have double-sided veiners at little cost.

Oh, and a corn husk is indispensable. One of my favorites.



Yes all about the veins. icon_biggrin.gif But then I was looking at RBI flowers earlier today... he doesn't even seem to use veiners on his filler hydrangeas and roses, and the hydrangea is the flower I got all caught up in over veining which stopped my in my tracks! I really think veining makes the flower but maybe I also over think it.... I had decided to do a wired 4 petal hydrangea, picked out the best veiner I could find for it then got overwhelmed. I mean anyways, what good is the perfect recreation of a hydrangea if it takes 30 minutes for ONE flower....not even a small spray!

Start small..start small...repeat to self and hug piggy bank so it doesn't die from money loss. icon_cry.gif I am also too scared to make my own molds, so maybe I should add that to my list. Must get over the fear! And now I need to add Lambeth to the list.... Grandma's couch or not... so shiny.....

New List:

Make a Mold
Sugar Flowers
Lambeth!
