I have a cake that's iced and crusting now. i want to try the computer paper smoothing technique, but I wanted to make sure I know how to do it. So what do I do? Just put the paper right on the cake and smooth? thanks soooooo much for any replies!!
That's sounds right. Make sure you icing is "set", when you touch it no icing comes off on your finger. I've never tried it with computer paper, I've used paper towels, wax paper and parchment paper. I would think the computer paper would soak up the shortening, let me know how it works.
You will need a couple of pieces of clean paper, as it does soak up a little of the "grease" from BC icing, but it's a good method.
thanks for your reply! I used wax paper, it worked pretty well. it's not perfect, but for my first try with the icer tip and smoothing like that it looks pretty good! i'll post the pic when I'm done.
