Help with scrolls

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hi, I need to make a a square cake (only one layer) for a confirmation next weekend and she wants something in line with this cake, these scrolls. I've never made these, any help would be greatly appreciated, any tricks I can do, can I do anything else then piping this?

that kind of piping is surprisingly easy to do, because it's free hand. make up some RI and practice. Practice, practice, and you'll get the hang of it. The best part is that if you're piping onto cold BC and you make a mistake, the RI just brushes off. 

 

 

The thicker tips/balls are just created by applying a little more pressure before you pull down the rest of the scroll FYI

Thank you, I planned on putting the scrolls on fondant and not buttercream, will that be more of a problem?

I suggest that you do the simple curves first, then go  back and add dots and squiggles.

There. Their. They're not the same.

 

I hope I die before "your" becomes the official contraction of "you are."

Thanks, that's helpful, I am still pretty nervous about this one, will probably give me a hard time to get but let's cross your fingers.

Wilton has a set of markers for making scrolls, I'm sure others do as well.  When I first started this is how I did mine because I felt my handy work was bad.  Like ellavanilla said, Practice makes perfect.

It will be the same for fondant. possibly easier because the surface is so much smoother.
