Need advice on some piping if poss please :) pic attached!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I've been asked to have a go at re-creating the piping detail in the pic below from this absolutely stunning wedding cake!  I've done piping before, but it's been more delicate looking, with a small hole nozzle, however this type of piping looks a lot bigger and not so delicate lol ..... would anyone know what size or number nozzle it was and maybe if there's a special technique for it??  The cake isn't needed until next year so plenty of time to practice, I just wanted to ask others and delve into it more before I say a definite yes and quote for it!

 

Thanks for any advice given :)

Some of that is piped & over piped. Id say a combo of tips ranging 3-6.

It's never "just cake!"

 

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!

I always find it first depends upon the size of YOUR cake not what the photo looks like. If your version is smaller, like a 10, 8, 6, 4 you'd probably use a #2 tip.  But if your cake is 14, 12, 10, 8 a #3 or #4 would be about right.

 

Also it depends on how heavy of a squeezer you are. I keep thinking I need a #3 for detail and every time I use it, it looks really heavy because I'm using a lot of pressure to increase my speed. I can use a #2 tip and get those heavier details in your photo.

 

..........and it definite has over piping like DD mentioned....
