This pdf template is designed to help you layout the large chevron pattern on the cake pictured above. Now it'll be easier than ever to cut and apply perfect chevrons that are beautifully lined up in less time. This is for the lined template only. There are written directions within the pdf on how to use the wax paper transfer method to execute the design, but I am assuming you have already taken my first class, "Clean & Simple Cake Design" and understand how to use the wax paper transfer method. If you'd like to take the class, here's a link for 50% off (http://www.craftsy.com/cakedesign). In this pdf packet, you will receive SIX layout designs for this pattern. The only differences is the spacing between the chevron zig-zags. You will receive patterns which include 5/16", 7/16" and 11/16". You will receive both vertical and horizontal templates for each spacing. You may use this template/design on a fondant, ganached or buttercream covered cake. If using buttercream, the cake must be chilled and firm in order to press on the design. I am using the Not Just Cakes By Annie: "Open Ended Chevron Cutter" Click HERE: http://goo.gl/1dDfr2. If you do not have this cutter, then simply print the template you need for your project on cardstock. Cut out one zig-zag chevron line and use that as a template to cut out multiple lines from modeling chocolate or fondant. This will take you a bit longer than using the cutter, so if you plan to do more projects like this in the future, consider having one on hand to speed up the process. NOTES: 1. This pdf does NOT include information on how to create the wafer paper flower. This pdf is ONLY to provide you with the template to create the large chevron pattern on the bottom tier. This is not a tutorial...you are buying a lined design (see pictures above to show you what you are buying). 2. There will be a seam in the back of the cake with this design. Due to set cutter sizes and various cake circumferences, you will not have a perfect, continuous design. Please use this template with that in mind. If you are planning to do a larger cake, consider applying 18" long sections at a time which will make the process considerably easier. You will have a seam, but you can rub it out a bit so it's hardly noticeable. Have fun and please post pics so I can see all the fun you are having with these templates! :) Blessings!
