This is the photo that a bride sent me. I attempted this technique today and it just does not look as good! I took a toothpick and separated the icing and painted inside the slashes. Am I going about this all wrong? The edges look lighter, so are the marks painted and then a lighter frosting piped on top?
I'm just baffled! Any ideas or experience with this?
