Cake Decorating Class 3 - brush flood work

This week we learnt to do 'brush flood work'. What is brush flood work I hear you ask.'s actually really hard to explain. Basically you pipe a line of icing, then get a wet paint brush and brush over the icing, pulling it downwards. It creates a really nice effect, which you can't really see very well in the photos of my work, but trust me that it can look lovely.
The trick is, however, that you don't have to do this free hand! You can draw on, or stamp on, the design (into your plaque of fondant icing) and then just pipe over the top! So it looks like you're really talented, but actually you're just tracing!!
