AYes. Don't try to smooth it, leave it rough and swirly.
You can "swoop" the icing around with the back of a spoon.
AI love when I have customers say they want a rough look in their cake! Takes so much less time. Something I have found that helps me when doing a tiered cake, go ahead and tier it and then ice already together.
Thank you! I was wondering if I should do it separate or together. I guess I'll go ahead and do it together! :-)
