I have decided that I need to start doing cheaper cakes for the locals. They love the dry cake with 7 minute "lustre de huevo" icing. Does anyone that works with this type have any recommendations?

I have worked with it before but the icing is so difficult for me, maybe i'm not beating long enough or too long. What do you add to the egg whites and sugar?

Please help

Muchas gracias...

This what I came up with...It's a whole new learning experience working with this kind of icing.

I'm back to square one!

It's cute! icon_smile.gif
Do the locals not like Buttercream? I've never used it, but 7 minute looks difficult to work with?

Beach cakes..

Yeah, they seem to be stuck on this kind of icing, and also the cheap price. It is alot harder to work with because it's soft, doesn't crust and can't seem to keep it's form. Alot of the locals think the buttercream is too sweet, but I have 'em changing over slowly....
