Help!! "Branch Texturing"?!!?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Has anyone on CC ever attempted the Branch Texturing - is it done with fondant strips? ButterCream with a flat tip? It's a beautiful technique but I'm not sure how difficult it is.

Anyone?

I've tried to attach a photo but can't! ggrrr.

If you can't attach a photo, could you at least copy/paste a link. There really is no way to advise you if we don't have any idea of what you are asking.

Life begins at 325° F, and, yes, that IS powdered sugar in my hair.

To me it looks like a flat thin ribbon of fondant done with a clay extruder.

If I am ever on life support, unplug me...

Then plug me back in.  See if that works!

I am just guessing but I think it is just like a # 8, 9 or 10 tip and piping butter cream on the side of the cake. I don't think it is fondant since it is in the buttercream cakes section. If i was doing this I would start out on a styrofoam cake round with different size tips to see what works the best.

Wow, it's a stunning cake. Let us know if you figure out. Looks like fondant strips to me, too!

I agree with Rising Bakery that it is just different sized small round tips piped over and over around the cake.

I'm with the piped buttercream camp

I'm with carmijok on this one. I down loaded the photo and blew it up to look at it. It looks like fondant which has been pressed through a clay extruder, and then wrapped around the cake in several layers.

I think if it was butter cream, there would be more breaks in the pattern.

So to summarize all the above posts, I think you could make a fab looking cake using either the fondant strips or piped with buttercream, pick your poison!

I emailed them to ask and got this reply:

Thank you for your inquiry. According to our head decorator the branch
texture from the cake you are talking about is achieved by piping in butter
cream with a number 2 or 3 tip.
