My best friend requested a cake in which an entire tier (possibly the whole cake) in sparkling sugars.
Anyone have any suggestions on how to go about covering a whole tier? I don't mean just spinkling them on, she wants them so you can't see any icing. It will be a red velvet cake w/cream cheese icing.
I'd love suggestions!!! Thanks!
This is such a pretty look, but I am not a fan of crunchy cake so I don't do it too often.
I place a tray (cookie sheet) on the counter, load it up with the sugar, take the freshly buttercreamed cake & start lightly pressing it on, holding it over the sheet to catch the extra sugar that falls off.
That is pretty is much it!!!
You will do great!
Thanks for the tips, I'm glad to hear someone has done this before!
I'm not a big fan of crunchy cake...but it's my best friend's birthday so I gotta give her what she wants! LoL! Can you imagine a CRUNCHY red velvet cake?? Hmm.....
I did this on the bottom tier of the red and white snowflake cake in my pics. I did an extra thick layers of frosting so people could avoid the crunchy sugar if they wanted too. I also mixed sanding sugar with sparkling sugar so it wasn't all giant chunks. There are certain flavors I wouldn't do this on. Carrot cake with sugar ....yuck... But lemon cake I'd be ok with. Red velvet sounds ok but I agree taste wise it's not my favorite but the look is beautiful.
