Damask Buttercream Wedding Cake

The damask pattern look has been so big in wedding cakes for a while, but until now I haven't actually done one for a client (I did make a display cake).  I have had the stencils now for oh, like... ever!

I finally had a couple interested in a damask cake, but they did not want fondant on their cake.  I have stenciled on buttercream before, so I knew it was possible.  I really thought it would be harder, but it was actually not too bad.  I found the key was keeping the cake nice and cold while decorating it, and working in small sections. 

The borders are just ribbon and the roses are real roses provided by the florist.  This cake was delivered to the Loose Cannon Art Gallery in Chattanooga.

  6. Once the cake starts to thaw, does it sweat? Wondering if the color would run?

  7. I didn't say that you freeze the cake, just keep it cold. Colors running, sweating and how cold to get the cake all depend on the icing you are using. Trial and error are the best teachers. Practice way in advance on a small cake.
