I have a little bit of a black stain on a white cream cheese icing from moving a fondant stripe. It's the length of the stripe but it's just a little. Best way to cover it up?
gently remove the black if you can, and add more icing and smooth as you normally would
I personally roll a toothpick in the part I want to remove
ElizabethsCakesCreations, the toothpick worked great, especially on a cold cake.[postimage id="4282" thumb="900"]
Awesome! I have made many a mistake ;-)
yes what ecc said -- i take a hat pin and wield it like a machete and cutout the booboo and re-ice -- phwp phwp phwp seriously they are wonderful at surgically removing just such problems -- they are "the fixer" hahahaha
a pearl head hat pin is a must in a cake decorator's arsenal -- I keep mine stuck in a piece of styrofoam -- and fwiw if you sticK toothpicks in the rest of the foam you can store your favorite piping tubes upright as well -- so you don't have to go scrounging and clawing through an endless ocean of tubes -- makes me shudder
best to you
Want to give odds on how many people ask what a hat pin is?
jgifford -- hey so I'm old -- a hat pin is the long skinny pearl head one that the banquet halls use to pin on table skirting -- so we should call them skirt pins now?
that btw used to hold on a lady's hat ergo 'le chapeau pin'
I have a box of those pins leftover from the days when I use to make corsages for Baby Showers and the like. You are right, it's a multi purpose must have. I use it to release air bubbles in fondant also.
high five, carolinecakes
I love the toothpick tip! Have never tried it but that is one I will remember when I need it. Thanks so much!
