Techniques » Filigree Piping
Renee Ouellette shows a cool piping technique that adds funky ornamentation to a fondant-covered cake. Listen to her tips for fixing minor piping mistakes, and watch her "trim out" the bottom to hide the seam of the fondant. To replicate the exact cake she is decorating, watch our Coloring & Rolling Fondant, and Fondant Flowers videos.
In 2008, Renee Ouellette needed a summer job and walked into a bakery to seek employment. She was handed a frosting bag, and given a shot at decorating a cake. With no previous decorating experience, she experimented with different pastry tips and taught herself piping techniques on-the-spot. Needless to say, Renee had the job. Today, she works for Erin Erler at Cakes By Erin, where she has seen her already honed artistic abilities and creativity improve even greater.
