European over piping with royal icing is an amazing skill to know, the beautiful dimensions are breathtaking.
If you want to pipe beautiful cakes using Joseph Lambeth method
you need to commit yourself to practice. Pipe with royal icing several times a week.
Covering a cake board and propping the board upright is a perfect way to practice without
spending money on a cake dummy (or baking a cake).
Once you feel comfortable than move to a covered cake dummy, and finally an actual cake.
Here is a wonderful video showing the steps to create the cake above!
I love the fact you only need a few supplies to pipe English/European over-piping.
