Best way to do this stencil on buttercream? - Page 2

Thanks for clearing that up. So you just use crusting BC to stencil and then swipe with Bettercream; right? I can't believe how many people love Bettercream or Pastry Pride rather than IMBC or SMBC. It's a lot easier that's for sure. I use it to fill cupcakes too.

That's my plan. Of course, I've only swiped the Bettercreme across parchment, so we'll see how it goes over top of the buttercream. I think it will be fine, though.

Make sure your cake sides are perfectly straight with a bench scraper.
You can then test your pattern by measuring around your cake with a ribbon and cutting paper to that length and lay out your pattern on it. Make any adjustments needed on the paper and go from there.

You can also use the stencils with royal icing. A good consistency is a good thing, not so thick you can't wipe it on but not runny either.

If your stencil design is too close to the edge, could you tape on something to the edge of the stencil to give you more of a border. Maybe tape on a strip of wax paper or something? Then you wouldn't have to worry about your brown going outside of the stencil. As far as spacing the design, the ribbon, paper idea sounds good especially if your designs are different sizes. If you have design that you need evenly spaced I have used the Wilton cake dividing wheel with good results. It is a circle of clear flexible material with lines radiating out from the center. You center your cake on the wheel. If you want 6 designs going around the cake just put a little mark on the cake where each of the 6 are on the grid and it will be evenly spaced. It works with any cake size and I think will divide any number of times up to 12.
