Excellent idea! Thank you for the feedback!

Tirby, I am so glad it worked for you! Keep up the awesome work!

Told my DH we needed to go to Menards. No big reaction. Told him I needed a paint roller. He asked what I was going to paint. I said I wasn't. I need it for my cakes. He says, "Been on the website again, haven't you?" icon_confused.gif

Do I really talk about you guys that much?!?!? icon_redface.gif

Thanks Melvira! Great job with the explanations!

LOVED THIS METHOD, had my Hubby, a painter, get me one of these rollers and it was awesome! icon_lol.gif Work SO well. My newest cake was flawlessly smooth and it was an easy method. And clean up of the roller was a breeze, just some dawn direct foam and squeegy action and it was done.Newbie deff encourged to try this and you pros got a new cool tool to play with! thumbs_up.gif

You are a star. I can only find one kind of roller. Rubbermaid foam roller. I don't have much choice here. Hope these will be OK.

Hey Superstar, as long as it is dense foam it should be just fine!! Good luck and let us know how it goes!!

The first time I used my roller, I was in love!! It took only a couple of minutes to smooth the cake, and I could move on to the fun stuff . . . decorating! Here are the pictures I took to show the difference. Sorry the pictures are in reverse order, but, you can see the difference that the paint roller makes. Any good ideas for getting rid of the curled edge?

Hi, I will be going to Home Depot tomorrow to pick up a roller. Thank you so much! I've always had a hard time making my cakes look smooth.

I do have several of questions:

1. What's a crusting bc recipe? Is this some sort of special type of bc frosting? Or does this refer to using any bc frosting recipe and allowing it to crust a bit before you use the roller?
2. How do you know the roller is high density? Does it say on the tag??

Thank you!! icon_biggrin.gif

Melvira,

When I went to Home Depot the lady in the painting area didn't know what I was talking about. Is it in a different area than the painting/staining area?

Thanks icon_cry.gif
