I did my first attempt at the diamond pattern template on a BC iced cake. Through CC I was helped with how to do this - thank you all. I put the corn starch on the template before applying it to the cake (so the template wouldn't stick to the BC) - this worked great but now I have cornstarch left on the icing - how do I remove that????? The pattern came out perfect but the residue is a problem ..... This was just a 6" test cake but I have a wedding cake I need to do this on. Thanks for any help in advance.
as long as the BC has crusted, you can use a makeup brush (or any soft bristled brush) to brush it off
Instead of corn starch, you could rub the template with some non-stick food spray. I usually just spray some onto a piece of wadded up kitchen paper towels and run that over the template before each use.
I've only used my template twice, but I didn't put anything on it. It didn't stick at all.
Thanks for sharing your tips! I haven't used mine yet, but I really am itching to use it! And now I'll know how to!
I tried a template for the first time this past weekend and it stuck too. Somehow my icing never did crust, but it usually does. I didn't dust it either. I will readjust and try it again! Ooooo...more cake!
Cake was only for DH and me so not a big whoop! I would appreciate any tips too.
