How to trace a drawing on a cake


Modèle dauphin
This is what I want to trace on my cake.




Tuto dessin piqué 1
Keep main lines of the drawing.
Put the sheet on a folded towel and punch lines with a wool needle (I didn’t say a knitting needle !…).

Mark at most angles and intersections of lines.

I obtain a punched drawing.

After having rolled my marzipan, I put the sheet onto the cake and spread chocolate powder.
Don’t forget any hole and press a little with your finger.

ESPECIALLY DON’T MOVE THE SHEET OF PAPER.

You can see the drawing, poitillism way.

Fill your frosting pen with melted chocolate and draw onto the dotted lines.

If you are right-handed start with the upper left corner (the upper right corner if you are left-handed).

Not so bad !

This tuto shows you the error not to be made : use chocolate powder when you want to draw with a clear color (you can see every not covered dot…).

Technique used for the dragon cake, the squirrel cake and a wonderful Ferrari logo cake for which photos disappeared…

    What a great idea.
    I’ve used this technique on fabric, never thought of it for cake!
