I am using the Profroster and using the cake board as my guide like the instructions say, but I am wondering how to get the waves out that the board is creating and how to disguise the board. Do I need to take the cake off the cake board and transfer it to it's fancy board after it is frosted? If so, do I do this right away? Is the side frosting not smooth because the buttercream is not the right consistency? I used American buttercream and I am thinking of trying Swiss. Thank you for your help!
It does look like the icing is a bit on the dry side Try adding a bit more fat be it butter or shortening Have you tried using a different recipe? Find the “2 of everything “ buttercream recipe on this site in the recipe section Even with the bumps on the board there should not be those waves
I just leave the frosting thick enough to hide the cake board. I would not try to remove it because it would probably mess up the frosting.
Are your cake boards round? I appears that the vertical lines could be caused from irregularities in the cake board or from pressing too hard into the cardboard in places.
