I have been very fascinated with piping and painting recently as you guys must have noticed.
I recently did some Brush Embroidery Cookies remember?
This time I decided to give it that lacy look. I love lace but don't always the patience to do fine piping.
But since I was in the mood to use both the piping bag and my paint brush. I thought..... Brush Embroidery Lace!!
Red Velvet Cake recipe. Layered in Chocolate buttercream in between and frosted with Vanilla Buttercream on the outside. Then covered in Burgundy (home made ) fondant.
But in just a few hours it had darkened so much. I was so shocked that the color changed so much! At first I thought it was just the lightening... but... anyway I wish I could keep it like so...
Brush Embroidery Cookies, I wrote in detail about the Brushes to use, the icing consistency to use as well as the brush strokes. So here, I can't really tell you any more.
I used the smallest brush shown in that post because I wanted the lace look.
I used the same soft peak icing consistency I spoke about and
I used long inwards strokes
Here are a few more progress pictures for you to help understand.
As you can see I used some of my flower cutter to emboss a pattern on my cake, as I wanted to create a symmetrical design.
You have to emboss the design on soft fresh fondant or else you will cut into the paste.
Working from the outside in... the leaves then the flower.
Here's a slice of my Red Velvet Cake for you to see.
