Help me document the Melvira Method! - Page 10

post #136 of 148
Will this technique work with using pastry pride whip icing (whipping top cream I think its called) ?

Thank you!

Unfortunately I cannot say with any authority, as I have never tried it, but if I were to hazard a guess, I would say no, it would not work on a whipped topping type product. Sorry I cannot be of more help!

Melvira, I tend to agree with you. The whipped icing does not crust so I don't know how it could possible work. Surely is a Godsend on BC though. Thanks again.

Did this tutorial ever get put into an Article? I just searched CC for the Melvira method - the results show an Article listed called "Quick and Easy Smooth Icing Using a Roller Melvira Method". But when I click on it, I get a recipe instead, for "Cream Cheese Pound Cake III"!

When I click instead on the link that says "View all results for melvira method in articles", I just get a page that lists all the articles (and none are about the melvira method).

Thanks!

Yes Maggie, it did! Thanks for asking! If you go to the CC home page and scroll down, it's about the fifth article down. If you have any trouble clicking on that link, please let Heath or Jackie know as there may be a problem!

Edit: Sorry, I just checked, it's the sixth article! icon_wink.gif And the link did work for me, so I hope it will work for you too! (And yes, it is called 'quick and easy'... etc. etc.)

Thank you for this post. Before today I have only ever decorated with fondant....I actually own my own business and refuse to take butter cream orders. However today I had a camouflage cake and knew that I wouldn't like the finished product if I just used the airbrush. So after doing a little online research and reading your step by step guide I ran out to the paint store, got a few rollers and made my first butter cream cake. I cannot believe how smooth it looks! And it blended the different colors together so well! Thank you again for taking the time to post this information....you really helped me out!
