icing mess that won't happen again....

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Dark colors in buttercream icing are so much fun to make and decorate with.  I love the dark reds, purples, and rich Navy blues.........but only on a cake that you cut and eat with a knife and fork.

I'm never ever putting them on cupcakes again.  The cupcakes I made with deep Halloween purple SMBC icing about drove me up the wall.

 

Eating a cupcake by hand I ended up with Purple blobs everywhere, clothes, counters, cups. very annoying, big mistake. Stains yuck.

Of course we all have our limits, but how can you possibly find your boundaries unless you explore as far and as wide as you possibly can? I would rather fail in an attempt at something new and uncharted than safely succeed in a repeat of something

and I know, I know.  I have probably made the same messy dabs with white SMBC, but at least it doesn't leave a live altering stain........arghhhhhh.

:duh:

 

Who was it that suggested coating a cake with uncolored icing, chilling it, then adding a thin outside layer of colored icing?  I don't remember, but THEY WERE A GENIUS !!!
