id wanted to try out this method for ages (finaly got round to using my piping bag i got for christmas too... )
i was surprised how well the design holds as the lines particularly on the wolverine cake were quite thin (cone size: 0 ). unfortunantly i managed catch the edge of the rack when i moved the cake and it cracked across the middle. So gutted!
oh well...if ever there was an excuse to try this again...
i went for a black and white design because i only had black and red food colouring (im not much of a baker) both claimed they were not 'bake stable'. this was indeed the case with the red (it went brown) but the black was clearly lying
the house stark version came out crack free...until i put the candles in
i know it would have looked better with white chocolate icing but i didnt have any and i couldnt bear the thought of my chocolate cake without chocolate
really easy technique, i had fun doing this deffinatly one to experiment with. maybe colour next time...
