With three illustrative projects, cake designer Kate Sullivan guides you through her favorite design-transfer and hand-painting techniques. Learn to emboss, over-pipe and paint cakes for a striking combination of color and depth. Blur the line between painting and sculpture with multi-dimensional sugarwork. Paint any pattern you desire using the pencil design-transfer technique. Plus, create a vibrant fusion of colors with the wet-in-wet, tie-dye painting method. You'll even learn to tailor your results using different styles and metallic pigments. Trends come and go, but cake art is forever. Hand paint coveted cakes with rich color and imagery using accessible techniques.
Meet your instructor, Kate Sullivan, owner of the New York studio Cake Power. Find your design inspiration, gather your tools and get ready to make three unique cakes.
Create a stamp from your chosen design with foamcore and royal icing. Pressed into fresh fondant, the stamp creates an embossed surface that adds dimension and texture to your cake--and conveniently transfers your design! Kate also demonstrates how to over-pipe and prepare the cake for painting.
The gorgeous colors of the Koi cake come to life as Kate shows you how to mix and apply paint to your fondant panels. She adds a modeling chocolate tail for extra dimension.
