hi, I wanted to try using stencils on buttercream. I have an airbrush machine, and also want to try spreading buttercream over the stencil.
I want to stencil the sides of a round cake. Now, when I place the stencil and hold it lightly in place, wont the edges of the stencil imprint the buttercream?
I use sams buttercream, and it does crust well, but any push on the frosting leaves a nice dent. I am worried abou thaving square marks from the plastic stencil??
You want to hold the stencil so that the edge does not go into the icing. Chill the iced cake before stenciling to make the icing a little firmer and that will also help to prevent making unwanted marks.
Thank you. I will try it.
Can I freeze the cake for 15 minutes or so to really harden it up, or use fridge only?
You should be able to put it in the freezer for 15 minutes without any problems. I usually put mine in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
Thanks for that question! You guys are on a roll tonight with great questions!
