I think I already know the answer, but can you use American Buttercream made with butter only for the paper towel trick? I read that it has to crust a little first and mine crusts with no problem, so I'm assuming it would work with my fondant smoother. I just wanted to check with other bakers who have done it before :)
I've had no problems using the paper towel method with any of my buttercream recipes. Hope that helps!
Also works with parchment paper instead of paper towels. Let the icing set up first. Make sure your room is below 75F - the cooler the better.
Absolutely. I make ABC with all butter most of the time and use the paper towel smoothing method. Works fine.
I use both wax paper and paper towels using Viva. When using paper towel be sure to look carefully for minute lint pieces the towel can leave.
brand new uber clean cloth is also an option
I really like the look of the different patterns the different brands of paper towels make & used them often I’ve heard judges at cake shows say how they take points off because they don’t:( That’s like the judges on those tv shows say someone’ s Icing is too sweet! I don’t get it-icing is supposed to be sweet Weird indeed:)
Ditto, kakeladi! Icing is supposed to be sweet! Sometimes I think judges are a little weird.
