I have been asked to cover a cake with "sparkling sugar". They want buttercream icing. What would be the easiest way to do this? Any and all suggestion appreciated. Thanks!
Yeah what she ^^^ said :)
Basically that's how most bakeries do jimmies &/or sprinkles.
Hold the cake at an angle over a cookie sheet (or other 'catcher') and grab up a handlfull of the sugar, slapping it against the 'wet' b'cream. If the icing has already dried, very lightly spray it w/water so the sugar will stick.
Another method, depending upon your final look - torte and fill, freeze solid, then quickly ice sides and roll in sugar (or jimmies). Press down while rolling.
Thanks for the suggestions. I appreciate the replies
