I have to make cupcakes for a wedding. The bride wants smooth butercream. I thought I remember seeing a recipe for a type of icing you can dip the cupcake in and it makes it pretty and smooth.. Not sure I could totally be dreaming this up lol!!
Any help or tips would be Greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance
You can find "rolled buttercream" in the recipe section. Perhaps you could cut out circles and attach them with a regular buttercream.
I know the technique you are referring to, but not sure what it is. Maybe liquid fondant? (check recipe section)
I know I keep saying check the recipe section, but it's because I know it's there. Sometimes it takes a while to find it, so try doing a "search". If I find a recipe that I think will work for you, I'll come back and post it. Good Luck!
OK, here's a rolled buttercream fondant that looks like it might work for you:
I just re-read your post and the part about "the bride wants smooth buttercream". My other suggestion is to use a crusting buttercream with the Viva papertowel method. Here is the link:
i think you are thinking of poured fondant, it is really pretty. you can also use glace icing, mmmmm.
smoothing bc on a cupcake... well, id say charge more! i couldnt be bothered, id encourage her towards something faster and easier. although i guess its the same as anything, once you have a routine you'd be fine. maybe ask her about a swirl of bc, or a fondant (or rolled bc? never tried it) circle.
