A new technique

June 9, 2010 Ka'ela Ja'el

One of my goals that I have been trying to achieve with decorating is to get this beautiful finish that you can do imprints on. There are gorgeous examples on the net, and while there are lots of tutorials everywhere, and people are willing to share some of their tricks, the actual covering of a cupcake didn’t seem to be that easy to discover. Now, it could just be that most people think it’s that easy you don’t need to be shown, but I have had a heck of a time working it out. I’ve tried


Anyway, after searching high and lo, and picking up hints from various blogs and tutorials, I think I’ve finally figured it out. Of course, I’ve got some refining to do – getting each cake nice and even, for a start, but it’s coming along.


The photos don’t really show it, but these are a deep purple colour. (And that was a challenge in itself 🙂 )

And this was a practice to get a really domed top. I’m thinking if I ever want to do Smurf toadstools it would be a perfect shape :)

    Nice. So the curved bit is in the decoration not the cake itself?

      Yeah, it’s imprinted into the fondant.
