I have a customer that wants me to make the top tier pattern all over the wedding cake. And I can't figure out how to get that look with the buttercream that I use which is buttercream dream. Anyone know how to achieve this look? Looks easy enough, but I've tried everything. My round part doesn't look rounded. Do you pipe first, then drag?
I wouldn't pipe anything there is no need. Ice the cake and use an offset spatula to make the design.
I've tried that, and it doesn't turn out like that.
It works that way for me using a 6inch offset. Maybe someone else will have another suggestion.
If you're talking about the cake on the right, perhaps a rounded a cake comb. The offset spatula idea was for the cake on the left. Comprehension isn't my thing on Monday's lol
Yes... cake on left. I don't know if it's my buttercream ir what. I've tried 3 different recipes, including a butter only recipe.. but still can get it to do that. I'm sure it's user error and would love to find a tutorial video out there somewhere.
Kind of similar, but a little different. Check YouTube in a search of rustic cake or textured buttercream buttercream cake.
Grrrrr my links aren't working, but I saw several using those words.
I do that sort of effect with SMBC all the time, works like a dream - have you tried using SMBC?
Oh my....the ads are slowing down my computer and posting things when trying to type and close the ads.
Me_me1. I think that wss it. Needed a softer icing, but didn't know what to try. Hadn't tried smbc. It definitely worked much better. Thanks for the help.
