How do I get my buttercream to look as smooth as fondant?

1. Search the Melvira method here and you will see a description using a roller and viva paper towels.

2. You can heat a spatula in hot water, dry the water off and use the warmed spatula to slightly heat the icing and smooth it. You must wipe off the water.

Good Luck!

Not sure where you live but in Canada you can't buy the Viva paper towels. I just got my mom to bring me some back from a vacation to the US and can't wait to use them!
