Hi I have had trouble with wax paper and sticking too. Now I only use plastic wrap. It takes a little extra time to stretch it out, but you can see the image easier and it never sticks for me. Good Luck!
Wendysue, I use a crisco based icing. I usually ice the cake with my large icing tip, another favorite item. Then i use the comb, you to need to comb it right after icing the cake , cause when the icing crust it doesn't work . You can even make several designs using the comb. Thank You
Hi, I am not that great at smoothing icing either, I could try all day and never get it perfect. My favorite trick is to use a cake comb, its a 3 sided metal triangle with different sides on it. It works perfectly every time and still gives the cake a professional look. Hope this helps! Check out some of my cakes for the combing method.
My Favorite item that I can't live without is my metal cake comb! I use it on all my cakes ,it works wonderfully. I am not to great at smoothing out the icing and with the comb, i get a neat finish to the cake, without the hard work of smoothing.
Hello, I was wanting ideas on how to keep the icing from sticking to the seperator plates when lifting it off of a layer of a wedding cake. I have read to sprinkle powdered sugar on the icing before putting the plate down and also wondered if that worked. Thanks for all your help! Mandy
