Product Description & Reviews

Cake Decorating is a required course in the Baking and Pastry curriculum offered in proprietary colleges and two-year community colleges. Baking and pastry students take this course typically in the second year of their curriculum. Gisslen's Professional Baking, 3e serves the needs of the fundamental baking course. However, in Baking and Pastry programs, students are more focused on decorating and design. This underscores the need for a book with complete and detailed instructions on decorating methods and techniques. Excerpts from the Book (Click on images to enlarge) Basket of Fruit This work of art is a magnificent collection of nearly life-size marzipan peaches, pears, oranges, and apples. The fruits are flanked with marzipan leaves, berries, and gumpaste blossoms. On the bottom, the basket is iced in smocked panels with stitchwork, and finished off with clusters of blossoms. The result is truly an outstanding piece that’s suitable for the finale of a lavish dinner party. SKILLS NEEDED Marzipan fruit modeling Smocked panels Gumpaste flowers SKILL: BASKET WEAVE Ingredients 6 oz (170 g) Practice Buttercream Icing Equipment #46 or #48 basketweave tip 12-in (30.5 cm) flex pastry bag or lightweight pastry bag 8-in (20.32 cm) round Styrofoam attached to a 10-in (25.40 cm) cardboard round Although basket weaving is an old-world technique, it is still commonly used and produces a stunning cake without a lot of effort. Amateurs and pros alike can give a tailored look to a cake with basket weave. With a little effort, your basket weave cake can be a work of art. Basket weaving can be accomplished with several types of icing tips. Although the #46 and #48 are popular tips and often used to create this look, you can use round tips (#7, #8, #9, #10, #12), star tips (#16, #18, #20, #21, #22), or even petal-shaped tips (#101, #102, #103, or #104). Illustration Left, top to bottom: The steps to create basket weave, using different colors and a #18 star tip for the downstroke. Right, top to bottom: The downstroke, crossover strokes, another downstroke that covers the first round of crossover strokes, and a crossover stroke over the second downstroke. Decorator's Hint: If you are practicing on a flat surface, position the icing tip and pastry bag at a 45° angle to it. Use the lift-and-drop technique to move the icing to the desired points on the surface.
