I have a question. I am making a buttercream frosted cake for my granddaughter's 1st birthday. I baked yesterday. Wrapped in plastic wrap and placed in refrigerator overnight. Torted and crumb coated then placed in refrigerator. I then applied the final coat of crusting buttercream frosting. I then placed in the refrigerator. It didn't dawn on me until hours later that I forgot to smooth with the Viva Paper towel.
In the morning I will remove the cakes from the refrigerator. Bring them to room temperature. At that point do you think I will be able to smooth using the Viva Paper Towel Method?
I don't think you'll have much luck. The crusting will have already occurred. You could apply another very thin coat of BC and viva it, or hot spatula.
