Has anyone ever made a brownie cake? I'm doing the grooms cake for my sister's weddding and she wants it to be a brownie cake. I'm doing sheet brownies stacked on top of each other. But her fiance owns Homestead Financial and she wants the granny cut out no problem yet..... But brownies seem to flake any ideas on how to keep that from happening?
how about carving the brownie frozen? That should reduce the flakes and make it easier to cut.
I have never done one before....Are you going to ice the brownie cake? If so, perhaps put a thin crumb-coating on it like you would do a regular cake. Once it sets, then ice away and decorate!
Whoops...Guess I need to learn how to read better! I missed seeing the part about cutting it out first. Sounds like freezing it first, then carving would be a good choice as suggested. How about cutting it out, then if you are going to ice it. use a pastry brush to gently get the crumbs off, crumb-coat, then ice?
