I had to laugh at myself for not thinking this out before I started the cake but here goes..
I always wanted to try the viva paper towel method everyone raves about on here. I purchased the paper towel, make a cake and iced it in butter cream.
What I didn't think about was that Viva paper towel in Australia has ripples in it. Although I got a pretty even finish to my buttercream, it had a checkered pattern on it from the ripples!
Luckily everyone thought it was part of the design!
Does anyone know what the alternative paper towel to use in Australia is so I can try this method?
What do other Aussie decorators do?
thanks for the reply Staciesweets but isn't the wax paper too greasy for this technique?
No that is what I use before and it work fine.
I've been wondering the same thing! lol - nothing like a few waves and dimples when it's meant to be nice and smooth!
I use various rippled and designed paper towels to give cakes a different look. I have been complimented over and over about how the heck I could spend so much time getting the icing to look like lace etc and I just lol knowing it's paper towels! lol
