stencil work on the side of a cake, covered with fondant????

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi all, question for you, this is my first attempt with stencil work....

 

I have to do a 4 tiered white fondant cake with black stencil work on the sides.  Would you use a royal icing for that?  Also, would the black bleed onto th white?  And, if I cover in buttercream, would the black bleed worse with buttercream?

 

With using the royal icing and it hardening, how likely would it break/crack during transportation? 

 

I am doing a 12/10/8/6, so would you have to use different size stencils?  My thought is the 12in cake would need a larger stencil then the 8 or 6?  The stencils are not going all the way around the cake, just on the front...

 

Thank you for your helpundefined

Hi. I have used black royal icing strencilling on white fondant several times on wedding cakes - they are in my wedding cake photos, here or on my website.

 

I have had no issue with bleeding, the only thing you need to be careful with is smudging and making mistakes - black RI will leave a mark if you need to remove a mistake.

 

I hope this helps. I don't do a lot of BC cakes, so maybe one of the BC experts will help out there!

Life's too short to make cake pops.

I have only played around with stenciling...I practiced on a cake covered with white fondant and used black royal icing.  It came out great!!!!! So much easier then I thought...

Good Luck!
