Fanci-Foil Wrap


A variety of leaves will help give your cakes a more realistic garden feel. Add piping gel to your icing to help keep your leaves from breaking.

The ball shape makes bold borders and is the first step to learn for figure piping. Vary the basic look by adding stars, dots or spirals on the ball shapes.

Pipe dots for flower centers, faces, figure piping and border effects. When making large dots, lift the tip as you squeeze to allow icing to fill out completely.

Characters or designs are often outlined first, then piped in with stars or zigzags. Outlines can also be used for facial features.

Add that special touch to your cake with your special someone´s name.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made this as a gift to my church. I added personal favorite verses from the Bible on it. It was quite detailed. I did most of it in buttercream and only did the top pages of the "book" in fondant. When I tried to use the food color ink markers I bought, they didn't work well so I used a fine paint brush dipped in gel food coloring. Half way through I found you get much neater lines and can write smaller if you slightly dip the brush tip in some water after you dip it into the food coloring. It was a HUGE hit at church!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made this cake for an elderly friend for her birthday. I made it with a Bible verse on one side and her name on the other. It was pretty easy except making the pages. I ended up using one of the edging tools and iced that part gold. The rest was white with gold letters and a small flower on the bottom left. Everyone liked it. I will do it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from i made this cake for a christening using white fondant for the top and the color writers to write a scripture verse...looked like real print and very polished..added a fondant rosary draped across the "bible" and it was a huge hit, kept the sides in buttercream - note that combing the sides to make pages can be a little tricky to make it look neat

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was an easy cake to make -- the hardest part was using the ruler to make the lines on the side. Make sure you don't wait too long -- I waited until the icing crusted over so I could smooth it out -- but then when I did the lines they weren't smooth. Next time I'll do it immediately after icing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made this for my nephew's baptism and everyone thought it came from a bakery. I had fun, you can do so much with this. Instead of the chalice, I did a bible verse instead. The only thing I didn't do was the scroll still came out beautiful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What makes this cake have some difficulty, in my opinion, is the writing on the cake. I think that the decoration on top of the cake is really pretty. And the blue paper matches the cake perfectly. You could do just about anything with this cake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was quick and easy, especially for a last minute request to make for first communion. Instead of chalice and host, used the candy melts to make the praying hands to go in the same area. It was a hit! Thanks for the inspiration.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Once the cake has the frosting and the fondant borders, the rest went pretty quick. I did not cover the whole cake board with the blue fondant. I used the strips and it worked fine in my opinion.
