I made this 2 tier cake to celebrate a friends engagement. I made these Tiffany blue cookies to match the cake. I was given complete creative freedom when it came to the design of the cake. This news was music to my ears! I have been itching to try out this new technique for quite some time, and here’s my chance. Brush embroidery involves piping a design directly on the cake and using a paint brush to pull the icing into the design to create a truly unique effect. Here’s how it turned out:
I am really happy with the results! I like that each flower looks unique and different. I was really nervous about piping directly on the cake, but I just went for it and I’m so glad that I did! I can’t wait to try brush embroidery again.
After piping the design on the cake, I thought it needed some sparkle. I used pearl shimmer airbrush color to add some glam to the cake and it really made the flowers pop.
Here is a close up of one of the smaller flowers. You can really see how the shimmer picks up the brush strokes. I’m impressed that I actually achieved this effect!
This cake was gluten free to satisfy the bride’s dietary needs. It was my first gluten free cake! I was really nervous about the cake holding up well, but it worked out perfectly. Congratulations Sivan and Jake!
