id wanted to try out this method for ages (finaly got round to using my piping bag i got for christmas too... Embarrassed )
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... Wink
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 Grin

the house stark version came out crack free...until i put the candles in Roll Eyes
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 Embarrassed





really easy technique, i had fun doing this  Smiley deffinatly one to experiment with. maybe colour next time...

Wait! Whaaat? These are amazing (as in they rock)! Your lines are so crisp and neat! I cannot wrap my head around how you got the cake batter to cooperate and not "move" (expand) while baking and distort your drawings! Please share how you did this technique Cheesy (And btw, they look super delicious, too ^_~)

thank you Smiley

there are a couple of tutorials floating around. this was the one i came across: http://bestfriendsforfrosting.com/2012/09/how-to-make-a-halloween-decorated-cake-roll/
 you pipe one colour then freeze then pipe another .... you may want to mix up an extra batch unless you very good at guessing exactly how much of each color you will use (i wasnt so there was a bit of wasteage Undecided )

thanks Smiley
i hate fondant and royal icing (im not keen on marzipan on cakes either) so i just used buttercream in the center and around the sides. this style of cake does go stale quicker than one that is completely covered though  Undecided (but then it took me ad my o/h over a week and a half to devour it. if you have a few more people to help you eat it this wouldnt be a problem. covering the top and any cut sections will clingfilm helps Smiley
