I attended a class today for icing smoothing. Most of what was taught has been covered here at CC, but I have never seen this posted.
Put a BIG glob of icing on top of your cake. Smooth it all over the top, but let it stick out over the edges. Looks messy. Then use an icing tip and put the icing all around the sides. Smooth the sides then go back to the top where you have all of this icing over hang. Use a small spatula to pull the icing to the INSIDE of the top. Makes a perfect edge. We did a round dummy and a real sheet cake it worked on both cakes. We used the viva paper towel and then after it had really crusted we took a small roller (I think it is sold with the fondant stuff) and rolled it all over the cake and it was beautiful.
I hope this makes sense. I wish that I had taken my camera.
If you have any questions..maybe I can answer them for you. I loved the class.
That sounds pretty interesting. I might have to try that one out! Thanks for the info!
Thanks so much for the tip.
