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!

Biscat Says... 9 years ago

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.

Cute cake. try mixing your frosting on a lower speed. it will reduce the air pockets. hth

Very cute. Bubblezmom is right - it's caused by air in the icing

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.

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!

something_sweet Says... 7 years ago

I LOVE your daisies! They are so cute!!! :D how do you make them?

Mladyfred Says... 7 years ago

I love the cake, but I LOVE the pix! Photoshop? How did you do it?

gucci Says... 7 years ago

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.
