I’m excited to show you what I have been working on! I saw a pattern on some fabric a while ago, which inspired this new stencil print. The pattern on the fabric was embellished and I wanted to create the same look without the hassle of piping everything by hand.

The stencil is now available through Designer Stencils.

This mini tutorial shows you how to add a few personal touches to a stencil to really create a unique and textured look.

Stencil the cake as per normal and allow the royal icing to dry.

To create some raised textures, play around with piping over certain parts of the pattern and add various edible embellishments. For this cake I used some ivory edible glitter, silver sanding sugar, pearl and silver balls, wafer paper and pearl paint.

Start by piping teardrops over the flower section.

Pipe and then stick on silver sanding sugar grains along the royal icing while it’s still fresh. It’s best to use tweezers!

Pipe a snail trail along the next line and use tweezers to place some small sliver balls. Place the balls in line with the solid line from the bottom section.

Use piping gel to paint over the scalloped section and then dip the end of a dry brush into the edible glitter. Dab the brush and glitter over the piping gel.

Pipe random dots all over the pattern and leave some as dots and place wafer paper confetti over others. The heart shape confetti was achieved using a craft puncher.

Paint the edges of the print in pearl paint and then pipe at the joins of the bottom scallop and place a silver ball on top.

This may appear to be a little time consuming, but the results are well worth it and it can actually start to get faster once you get the hang of things 🙂

And… Ta-Da!
