Chantilly Lace?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hey everyone!

 

I just got an order for a wedding cake - the bride wants a cake that has Chantilly lace piping all over two of the tiers. I'm pretty unfamiliar with this piping technique because I'm a self-taught cake artist.

 

Does anyone have any tips on how to pipe the design? What tip to use... What type of icing (royal, BC, SMBC, etc) ... I'll be piping on fondant.

 

Here is the photo of the cake that she wants.

 

Another thing, I have to track down the original cake artist, "Raquel" who made this so I can be sure I can replicate her design. Might be hard but I won't "copy" her design without permission.

I wouldn't worry about copying that design, it is gorgeous, but noting special. I have done it but the only picture I had of it was on a camera phone from around Y2K , so it was pretty grainy.

Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

Why do you need to ask "Raquel" for permission to do cornelli lace on your cake? I don't think "Raquel" invented this technique..it's been done a gazillion times and then some.

 

Very pretty cake though!

Pretty cake, but absolutely nothing original about it that design.

 

I can guarantee that people were piping cornelli long before this *raquel* was even born!
