post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I recently came across a cake which I found amazing and would love to learn to do this. It was titles smocking and piping. Please click herehttp://m.flickr.com/#/photos/rosey_sugar_palace/998067559/
To view it. If there's a book can anyone refer it? I'm not sure on the piping skills it Looks like basic and Oriental but I'm not sure.

There's a few of directions I found.

 

1.  found this book - Smocking with Sugarpaste.  The book is expensive (out of print and hard to find) but I think you can get a used one on ebay.

  http://www.abebooks.com/Smocking-Sugarpaste-Venn-Cynthia-Merehurst-Press/874337297/bd

 

2.  Do a search on CC for smocked cakes and pm that person for direction

 

3.  If you Google fondant smocking a tutorial for smocking on cookies by Couture Cakes by Rose will come up.

 

I hope someone else chimes in with better avenues for you - :)

There. Their. They're not the same.

 

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

Thank you. I did respond to a few but the postings are a few years old. I was only able to find the video of smocking. I wasn't sure of an actual book. Thanks! I just got the book for $5.99. I can't wait to read it!

Do you think on top of the smocking she uses basic piping skills along with the Oriental method?

Really - no apology - I had just noticed that shanter and I were looking for another book earlier.  Sorry if it came across wrong.
