I'm sure this has been addressed already, but I'll ask anyways. Can you airbrush on buttercream covered cakes? TIA!
I usually put a Nice thick layer of buttercream under fondant just for that reason. That way they could just peel it off and eat the cake. I love the way fondant looks and really don't mind the taste but a lot of people don't like it. I usually make my own fondant, I like it better than store bought.
Shell method, old school here!
Diane, what do you use to hold your cake together? I only Use a tiny bit of icing and sometimes I use a liqour (bailys) but only enough for the cake to bind together.
Do you cover small cake spheres With fondant, the size of a softball. I've been struggling to cover these balls to no avail! They come out lumpy,squishy and plain ugly! Does anyone have any tips? Any advice would be appreciated! TIA!
I also have the upper & lower alphabet clikstik and love them! It took a couple of tries before I got the hang of them. Great product!
AZcouture, thanks for the tip! I'll be using this!
Thanks for the spun sugar recipe.
I do both. I can do a pretty good scratch chocolate cake, but when it comes to other flavors I prefer to use box only because it's better than mine. When I find a good scratch cake recipe I use it Instead of the box mix. In my opinion it's not cheating just taking a short cut. Hope I don't catch too much flak for this.
