I am making baby block cakes for a shower. I don't want to use fondant on all of them. Is there a good technique to get the corners crisp using buttercream?

The upside down frosting technique looks like it'd do the job nicely icon_smile.gif I've never tried it but it looks simple enough.

I'm doing approximately 50 petit four baby blocks ths fall for the 1st time and I too have wondered the best way, but I think I'm going to do the quick pour fondant and air brush the desired colors and apply fondant letters. Whatever you decide, let us know and post pics! icon_smile.gif

I'm not sure that this is the look that you are looking for but how about the quick-pour fondant icing? http://cakecentral.com/recipes/7472/quick-pour-fondant-icing-2

This is a quick and easy method. Do a search on Flickr and see the results you get by using quick-pour fondant icing. They have a ton of beautiful images. Here is an example of one: http://www.flickr.com/photos/josefs/3024458188/

I'm going to try this method on cake balls!
Good luck! icon_biggrin.gif
