How do I get this affect? It looks so simple, but the top is still perfectly smooth. How is it done? I would love a video/tutorial.
Its just a spatula or a spoon...then neaten up the top again a bit. I love that simple homestyle look...
i love this look too -- there's a cake like this in Martha Stewart's book and she says offset spatula.
Using a spatula, would you pull up, pull out, etc? it just looks so clean. When I try it leave all sorts of marks, pulls, etc.
Have your bc a bit thicker than usual, use a hot,dry palette knife and drag just the rounded end upwards.
Nunuk has a beautiful one and explains her technique in the comments here:
