Stained Glass Cake
Today I wanted to share with you my latest Stained Glass Cake.
I love how it turned out.
There are many ways to do a stained glass effect on cakes. Some do it with piping gel and some do it by painting. This one is done using the painted method using a brush and paint.
Now I personally learned this technique in an online Craftsy class called Decorating in Three Dimensions by Maggie Austin. It’s an amazing class packed with lots of information on how to do the Bas Relief cake I shared recently as well as this Stained Glass technique. She also shared how to make the sprays on both these cakes.
So if you buy this class you get to learn two very amazing techniques and a few variations on those too. So it’s worth every penny if you ask me. Plus Maggie is so talented and I truly love learning from her. I have all of her classes on Craftsy so far. She truly is amazing.
Well to give you a general idea – what you do is choose a design you have in mind or choose a random pattern if you are comfortable. Then choose the colors you want. Follow the pattern and start adding color using your paintbrush and gel colors or a tissue paper and powder colors. Maggie shows you both methods.
Then you add the black lines to your design. Again Maggie shows you how and what is the best way to do that. She used a black edible marker but I am more comfortable with the paintbrush so I used a paintbrush.
She shared great tips on how to make your design more attractive by simply using the black likes to make parts of the pattern more esthetic.
I do have another Stained Glass Cake coming up soon and I am already looking forward to it.
Thank you for stopping by.
