This may have been posted but I haven't found it. I love using the Viva Method on my cakes. But I'd say in the last 6 months or more, they seem to be putting off alot more lint than they used to. Does anyone notice this or am I crazy? With that being said....... Does anyone have any other Ideas or techniques? Let me know. Thank You

I finally tried viva towels this weekend, we usually use towels with designs or less expensive ones than viva. we were constantly picking off little threads, dark. thought it was just us since noone here has said anything. we really liked the super flat look , the bride even thought we did fondant. we just hated the threads, anyone else having issues.

Try wax or parchment paper.....I've been using this for over 20 yrs to smooth BC.

Honestly I had never heard of the Viva paper towel thing til I joined CC. The thought of using paper towels bothers me for the exact reason that you guys have mentioned.....lint.

You are letting your BC crust before you try the smoothing method, right?[/b]
