Queen Of Hearts Cake

 Queen Of Hearts Cake  on Cake Central

This was my first attempt at a BC glaze. I made this cake to take in to work (where most of my creations are appreciated), and as a prototype for the graduation cake I made for a co-worker of mine. This was a 12"×18" red velvet sheet cake. Oohs and aahs from everyone at work who saw it, and it was all gone by lunchtime!

BC glaze is short for "ButterCream glaze". It's made by combining equal parts stiff consistency BC icing and corn syrup. It oozes like Wilton ColorFlow (tm), but doesn't harden when it sets.

oohh ! Good to know ! But if it doesn't harden , does it bleed , or is it messy ? Because I really like the look...looks a bit like piping gel

Don't worry, angelkiss ... it sets once it's on the cake for a little while (I put it in the fridge afterwards), and it doesn't run, either, when you cut the cake

I think daviscakes is at the blackjack table wanting another card, basilikon. This cake is just gorgeous! I have never heard of buttercream glaze and now I want to try it!

Thanks, Cakey :) ... Just make sure that when you do the BC glaze, you use light (not dark) corn syrup. I find the Karo Vanilla Corn Syrup works quite well.

thanks, ruby :) ... actually, tabs, I scanned the playing card, and enlarged the design (after reversing it to get a mirror-image) and then traced the pattern with coloured piping gel through a piece of parchment paper. I used this piping gel tracing as a pattern and transferred it to the top of the cake, then decorated with BC and BC glaze.
