Looks great!!! Have you used this method on square cakes? Seems like all my brides want square cakes, much to my dismay!

Gracias por el tutorial está fantástico. Cuando dices hi ratio shortening, te refieres a manteca crisco o manteca emulsificada??

Gracias por aclarar nuestras dudas!!!

I can't wait to try this method too! I have a hard time with my edges. I'm doing a baby shower cake for this weekend, and I'm going to try icing this way. Hope it makes it a little easier. I always do the viva method and have tried the hot spatula, but this seems easier. We'll see!! Thanks for the tutorial and the pictures - I love when people share there techniques...

Es manteca vegetal especial para icing, como Crisco. Se llama Sweetex o Alpine.

Great pictures! Wish I could use the tips you shared but I use a non-crusting buttercream.



You can use this technique with a non-crusting recipe I use SMBC most of the time and all I do is refrigerate it till set then use the paper towel method to smooth it works perfectly!

Uso manteca emulsificada.

I don't use meringue powder on my buttercream and the icing is very stiff so there is no need to wait. No fuzzy stuff int he icing.

Does this technique work on sheet cakes as well? I have a baby shower cake and I have never been really good at getting smooth icing so I want to try it, but I want to make sure that it would work before I try it. Thanks so much!!!! Your cakes are absolutely amazing!!!!

Beautiful....what exactly is high ratio flavorings ? Can this method work with IMBC ?? probably not with the papertowel since it's very soft but the technique probably will.

Thank you soooo much for posting this. I resort to fondant every time because I can't get my buttercream smooth. Your technique and talent makes it look like fondant. I need lots of practice. Cake anyone? icon_biggrin.gif

I've tried many methods, but have never been completely satisfied with the results. This is the best one I've tried yet!

Thank you for helping me find your post (from your cake photo of "Buttercream soft green") and these great instructions.

I have done a similar method, only my buttercream developed cracks. Does the risk of cracks in the buttercream increase when adding meringue powder?

Can't wait to try this. Right now I use the Viva method and people comment on how my icing is so smooth but I still see issues on every cake. Hoping this will help. Looks great!

I agree, I also use the Viva papertowel method yet here recently I have found that when I am finished with the cake the frosting cracks after it I try to pick up the cake to put it into the cake box. Could it be that I possible need to refrigerate my cakes to help them set? I am afraid of placing the cake in the fridge with fondant decorations on them..... (Just in case someone ask use a butter shortening recipe, should I use more of one than the other?)
