Stenciling on a round cake.
I am doing a 3 tier round fondant covered wedding cake with Damask design. I am having trouble getting the design to continue around the cake without messing up the design. What do you suggest to keep the design in one even flow around the cake?
Robin Hi Robin, I have not stenciled on a cake as of yet, but I know exactly what you are talking about. I think. I am assuming you mean where the stencil meets in the back?
If there will be a back side to the cake that no one will see you can place the part that isn't perfect in the back out of view. Another thought is to pipe a seam of beads up the cake where the design meets. That would look nice. Sort of like buttons. You could also use fondant or gumpaste buttons or pearls as the seam.
If you mean each individual stencil then I am not sure other than measuring first and placing reference points on the cake so that the stencil is at the same height and distance every time.
Let me see if any of the Facebook cake decorators that I have met online can help. I will add a post there as well.
Thanks for visiting and I hope we can all figure out the best way to handle this stenciling on a round cake question.
