Leighanne  on Cake Central

Leighanne

I have decided to start naming my cakes after the people they are made for, so meet Leighanne. :)

This is a confetti cake with cherry icing and fondant flowers. I am frustrated with the tiny holes in my buttercream - I smoothed with parchment paper but I'm just not sure what's causing the bubbles/holes. Maybe I'll post on the forum with pics for some great advice...

Thanks for looking!

Thank you all so much for kind words and words of wisdom - I made bc on low speed last night and it made all the difference. Thanks! Sarahscakes - the petals and centres are fondant.

The cake is too beautiful to even notice the holes. I love the way you've posted the picture. How do you do this?

Thank you so much! Yes, I added cherry flavoring to the buttercream - ymmmm.... BJ - I use Microsoft Digital Image Pro to layout my cake photos. Thanks again for all the kind words!

The icing needs to be mixed at the lowest speed to keep the air pockets down. Never mix buttercream on high speed. Great cake. Love the color combination.

Tami, your cakes are just beautiful! I'm trying to control myself from adding them ALL to my favorites. You should do a picture book of just your cake photos!!!

What a sweet cake. It's beautiful! I have the same problem with the bubbles. BUT.. your cake is so pretty, no one sees the tiny flaws! Great job!

Biscat, this cake is so pretty! I never would've notice 'holes' in your BC if you hadn't mentioned it. The cake is so nice that my eyes never wondered to any 'flaws.' I also love the layout and that cakestand! I've decided I'd like to start collecting unique cake stands, and I love this one.
