Stained Glass Cake Design

Sharing a  technique that I recently tried. I had always wanted to try a stained glass design look on a cake.

So, when my son colored a "stained glass" picture I new exactly what I wanted to do with it!

 Plus, I love birds, especially hummingbirds!

 I traced the picture onto some parchment paper

and traced the design with piping gel.

This is a technique taught in Course 1,

I just doctored it up a bit by filling in the design with colored piping gel

instead of all buttercream.

After the design was on the cake I re-traced it with black buttercream and filled in with colored piping gel.

    I added a few flower designs onto the side of the cake.

It came out quite nice, just what I was looking for, and my family  enjoyed it that evening!
