7 1/2" oval spice cake, buttercream frosting, apple cinnamon filling
Techniques Used-grapes, vines, leaf borders
Focus-casual frosting coat, grapes, vines,
I found this idea in my Wilton Cake Course 1 book, but it's no longer available.
I was interested in learning how to frost the cake so that it had slight waves in it. It was harder than I thought. I found out that I needed to put more frosting on than usual (I tend to make thin coats). It was a good experience, and maybe I will do that again. Here's a picture below of the cake with a wavy coat.
I learned with the vines that I had a hard time doing them free hand. I ended up taking a toothpick and imprinting the design first. I think I should've added more vines or grapes, but it was good practice. Unfortunately, I don't have a picture of just the vines.
