In Something Different, Textured Sides – Take 1, I showed using Tip 1M to on the sides of the cake.
This time I used a technique we learn in Decorating Basics, the zig zag.
I crumb coated the side of the cake, but did put a normal amount of icing on the top of the cake.
Using a Tip 21 I piped zig zags from the bottom to the top.
I really like how it came out. It gave me a chance to make a not so plain cake on a night (after class) that I didn’t have to spend a lot of time decorating.
If you happen to have a cake where you get crumbs in the side of the cake, this would also be a nice ‘cover up’ for the crumbs.
