Icing a cake - Page 6

post #76 of 148
Thank you soooo much for posting this. I resort to fondant every time because I can't get my buttercream smooth. Your technique and talent makes it look like fondant. I need lots of practice. Cake anyone? icon_biggrin.gif

Thank you for helping me find your post (from your cake photo of "Buttercream soft green") and these great instructions.

I have done a similar method, only my buttercream developed cracks. Does the risk of cracks in the buttercream increase when adding meringue powder?

Can't wait to try this. Right now I use the Viva method and people comment on how my icing is so smooth but I still see issues on every cake. Hoping this will help. Looks great!

I agree, I also use the Viva papertowel method yet here recently I have found that when I am finished with the cake the frosting cracks after it I try to pick up the cake to put it into the cake box. Could it be that I possible need to refrigerate my cakes to help them set? I am afraid of placing the cake in the fridge with fondant decorations on them..... (Just in case someone ask use a butter shortening recipe, should I use more of one than the other?)
