Has anyone tried there hand at this? - Page 2

Oh, and it didn't take too long to pipe the panels. Just followed the lines, and moved on to the next. Actually pretty easy.

Sound quick, not going to say easy though. That sucks though, how could people sit around and take credit for others work. I think karma may have paid her a visit.

The book I have is called '101 cake designs' by Mary Ford. It is full of great RI designs with step by step instructions. I borrowed it from my Library then went and bought my own copy off e-bay for $10 including postage from England.

I may not make perfect cakes but I gaurantee they all contain a super special ingredient .... lots and lots of love .

...... '101 cake designs' by Mary Ford.......

 

This was one of my favorite books!  I love, Love, LOVE! her designs.  I did many of them in b'cream. Sure, they are somewhat different but close enought to still be really nice.  I probably have some in my pix album.

One has Jeanne. You are quite right, definitely run out and piping, you'll never get this effect using anything else. Mary Ford's early books are great for this type of work as she gives instructions on each section and tells you how long to leave each stage to dry. Try her 101 Cake Designs. burgundy cover, printed 1983. Another good one for this technique is "Cake Decorating and **********" by Evelyn Wallace and first published by George Newnes Ltd. in 1967 and copyrighted to Hamlyn. There are some awesome Christmas cakes using this method in this one. Start off simply and work up to difficult. I've made lots of these over the years and they never fail to impress. You can even cut through them with a quick blast of steam and a very sharp knife. The ones with iced pictures underneath look particularly good as it's like looking through an old fashioned window. Just remember that practice makes perfect, don't be impatient if it doesn't work the first time, you'll get there in the end. I haven't done one for a number of years now due to the so called "fashion" in cakes but you've re-stirred my creative genes and if I feel well enough I might just get the urge to make a Christmas one.

Good luck with your endeavours

I don't know what is supposed to be offensive with the word I used but if I separate it maybe it will be acceptable. Sugar Craft. There you go but it is all one word on the actual book though.

Cheers

I think when you put the words together it becomes a website that is automatically edited out on CC.  Nothing you posted was offensive,  It's that technology thing - LOL

Thanks so much. Now I have some books to find and once I find them I'll do some reading and give a simple one a try.
