Wow Edna... another wonderful video... You are amazing.. Now for the quesrtion........ You stated to cut the dowels (love those cardboard dowels btw) 1/4" below the buttercream height.. So.. then you remove the icing on top of the cake to the level of the dowels? Sort of how you remove some cake to stack a topsy turvy.. Is that correct? I hope that question made sense..
Is kind of like a topsy but is not really a deep hole is more like an indentation on the buttercream..Is like a small cradle for the cake to lie in there. I am not cutting a hole in the cake, is just lowering the level on the buttercream.
