Tutorial: How to Create an Icing Effect

Learn how to create cake icing with this video tutorial by Ray Mairlot.

Ray Mairlot:

Here’s my latest tutorial based on my ‘Icing Text Effect’ video where I explain how to create the core effect of a semi-solid liquid coming out of a tube (think toothpaste, mustard, tomato sauce etc.)

What you will learn:

  • How to combine multiple curve modifiers to create more complex deformations
  • How to use mathematical expressions to drive values
  • How to use hooks to edit the length of a curve during an animation
