Can I pipe a buttercream decoration - a turkey in this case - onto greased parchment paper, freeze and then remove and place on cake without turning it upside down. I would like to use different tips and designs on the turkey which would not show if done transfer style
probably would work -- plan in advance for finger marks -- for example add some 'tabs' that you could slice off after application -- or you could apply the transfer to the cake and then pipe the fluffiness --
It should be okay, I've had to freeze butter cream flowers to put them down the side of a cake before, it's easier than piping it on the side directly.
Thanks. I'm new to cake decorating and I think its easier to correct mistakes on parchment paper than on the cake. I just don't want "fluffiness", but different designs throughout the decoration.
Apardon my short sightedness
AOk im lost....what do we mean by "fulffiness"??
Ai meant texture -- one word to reference the last sentence in her first post
AOh ok...thanks Kate...:grin:
AI've done it before with some small flowers and it worked fine. However, if you are going to have it in the freezer for any length of time be sure to somehow cover it (possibly put it in to bottom of a lg cake pan with a lid) because I left mine for a couple hours and they got that nasty freezer taste.
Thanks everyone. I'll post on this thread after I've done it with results.
