Tools & Ingredients
- A pre-prepared and dry fondant covered cake
- A batch of Royal Icing (your own recipe or our Royal Icing mixture).
- A spatula
- Adhesive tape such as masking tape- trial on your fondant in an inconspicuous area first
- Metal scraper or ruler
- A toothpick for tidying up
Apply decorating stencil to dry (overnight) fondant cake using adhesive tape. Test tape in an inconspicuous place first to be sure the tape doesn’t pull at your fondant.
Prepare Royal Icing according to pack instructions, then add additional icing sugar to create a thick, stiff consistency. Spread thickly over taped stencil.
Use a scraper or ruler to evenly remove excess icing off stencil.
Carefully remove stencil from cake, pulling from left to right.
Tidy up any bleeding using a toothpick or damp cloth. Allow Royal Icing to fully dry before completing pattern on cake.
To complete the stencil pattern, tape clean stencil to area of cake where pattern needs finishing (top and/or bottom). Repeat steps 2-4, then your beautiful design is complete!
