The damask pattern look has been so big in wedding cakes for a while, but until now I haven’t actually done one for a client (I did make a display cake). I have had the stencils now for oh, like… ever!
I finally had a couple interested in a damask cake, but they did not want fondant on their cake. I have stenciled on buttercream before, so I knew it was possible. I really thought it would be harder, but it was actually not too bad. I found the key was keeping the cake nice and cold while decorating it, and working in small sections.
The borders are just ribbon and the roses are real roses provided by the florist. This cake was delivered to the Loose Cannon Art Gallery in Chattanooga.
