I am so used to smoothing out my cakes that I have become rustic impaired. Unfortunately this years wedding themes are rustic. Can anyone tell me how to create the rustic look? I have attached a few pics of the cakes that I would love to duplicate the texture of the buttercream on.
Any help would be soooooooooooo greatly appreciated. Are there special tools etc....
I have done both designs. I'm not a fan of either..but understand they are the popular style now. Here's how I do it...
Put your buttercream on heavier than normal. Use the bench scraper to get the sides even. For the vertical stripes I use my regular icing spat and just go up ..one at a time. For the horizontal stripes I use my small round tipped offset. Spinning the turntable while I hole the spat level.
They are pretty easy techniques...just drive us smooth icing guru's crazy!
Thanks. It sounds a little to easy for such a pretty look.
