I use the Wilton buttercream recipe when I decorate cakes. I have started making stacked and tiered cakes. When I try to do buttercream decorations on the sides of the cakes, sometimes the icing decorations seem to "slide off" the sides of the cake. Do I need to use a stiffer icing consistency? Thanks for any advice. I really appreciate it! :-)
Use a stiffer icing on the sides as well so the "base" is firmer. Then allow to crust of refrigerate to avoid the "slide"
Thank you so much! I will try this on my next attempt! :-)
