Learn how to make a cute little origami icing swirl or whipped cream to go on your origami cakes and other things. It could also be used on a flat origami ice-cream cone.
This is basically a twisted and curled water bomb base. I made these to decorate the cake slice boxes, but you can us them for anything. I am going to be making an ice-cream cone for these at some point.
You will need:
1 sheet of square paper – I used 15 x 15 cm.
Use about 5 x 5 cm if you’re making this for the cake slice box.
For the fuller cream(white one in the photos), use 2 sheets, and make two, and stick them together, I show it in the video.
hi chrissy, i love your website and i use it for most of my origami creations! i just have one thing that i find a bit frustrating: in your videos, when you use origami paper that is the same colour on both sides, you usually don’t tell us what colour side to start with if we’re using double coloured paper. i often end up winging it and i have a lot of origami that is the wrong colour which i find very annoying. i either just let it be the wrong colour or i have to undo it and start again.
please mention what colour to start with for your tutorials!! it would save me wasting a lot of precious papers and make your tutorials clearer with the instructions.
I’m glad to hear that you like the website 🙂 Sorry to hear that you find that particular thing annoying. Back a few years, youtube used to have annotations, little speech bubbles that you could add info to. Whenever I forgot to mention the paper side, I would have added one, however youtube removed that feature and the annotations too. In most recently made tutorials I have tried my best to use paper with different colours, or add which side to start on. One thing though, it would be better to practice all origami models with a sheet of paper you don’t care about, the first time folding a model, will never be that great 🙂
What is that flower like thing on one of your cakes? It looks amazing, and i was wondering if you can show a
tutorial, or if you made a tutorial already, can you plz give me the link or something.
I have a tutorial for it being posted in the next few days, buts it’s really easy, first cut a circle from a small square about 5 x 5 cm, then cut it into a swirl, leaving a lumpy bit in the middle. Then start rolling up the paper from the outside inwards, it should be tightly wrapped and then let it fall open. ??
Very easy and useful! I’m already thinking of using as finishing and mobiles … Thank you for teaching, your dedication is wonderful!
