Do you think I could make a decorating comb?
I really have no time to run to the store and since a decorating comb looks so simple, I was thinking I could make a temporary one out of cardboard or very sturdy paper and cut it out with my x-acto knife. Im just trying to improvise. This is for a rolled meringue cake that is filled with a custard filling that my sister requested for tomorrow.
Hi: If you're homebound, this won't work, but you can buy tile-layers' pointed and/or square grout tool. The cheap plastic ones are about a dollar.
I know this is a bit late, but as an fyi - if you have pinking shears, you can make a cake comb with thick cardboard (not corrugated.) I have cake decorating stuff, but that's what I'd do if I didn't and needed a comb in a pinch.
Better yet, I've seen these decorative edge scissors in craft stores - imagine the design one of them might create if you used them with some plastic or cardboard.
