Wow this is amazing but I am not sure if I could pull that off but oh man I might have to try just to prove myself wrong,lol!

Thank you curiAUSSIEty custom cakes! I did include just the picture chart to see the steps better. But I would bet this would be no problem for you! I do appreciate your kind and encouraging words!

What a unique way to do stripes. Like curiAussiety…not sure I could pull it off.

Great tutorial thanks ! will have to try this one.

Tammy LaPenta ...

Thank you dapperme! It was a delicious cake! The cake was filled with a KitKat Swiss meringue buttercream! I just chopped up the candy bars and added it to the buttercream! It made it a fun celebration cake!

Thank you June (“Clarky’s Cakes”) and Paul Delaney of Delaney’s cakes! I am sure you both will also be able to do the striping! My first cake was kind of a flop. I didn’t have enough icing and was digging into the cake in some areas. So I figured I needed to make sure there was plenty of icing to get the nice deep combing. Also my first cake started out chilled and the buttercream was firm but became soft quite quickly and the buttercream colors bled into each other as I was trying to fill in the stripes. So always working with a firm buttercream to the touch is important to help illuminate that. And of course the super straight sides is a must for all cakes but especially here so that you get a pretty look when the cake is sliced and served. I made this picture tutorial to show the steps that I take that has helped me to achieve this technique successfully. 😊

What a stunning technique! I am afraid mine would look more like a two color watercolor effect :o(
