Great pictures! Wish I could use the tips you shared but I use a non-crusting buttercream.



You can use this technique with a non-crusting recipe I use SMBC most of the time and all I do is refrigerate it till set then use the paper towel method to smooth it works perfectly!

Cuando fui a Puerto Rico a enseñar como hacer esto, no le pude poner agua porque hace mucho calor y no se necesita el agua.

I don't know what is the difference between crusting or not crusting...

My recipe
2 cups of butter
2 cups of hi ratio
flavorings
4 pound of confectioners sugar 10x
3 tablespoons of hot water (depending on the weather)

I don't use meringue powder.

I add water to crumb coat but to ice is stiff consistency...I hope this helped.

Let me know if you have additional questions.

Thanks icon_smile.gif

the tip 18, I have seen these, but couldnt find a coupler... is there such a thing as a coupler for that? or doI just put it down in the bag?

I think mybiggest problem is I dont water down my crumbcoat.

It seems to pull my cake away and is too thick. I have to master the icing before I can get good at anything else.

I do much better when someone wants a cake with a texture cover. LOL

Thank you everyone.

The tip 18 is a regular star tip, nothing special is needed.

If you don't mind me asking, what type of recipe do you use for your buttercream?

Also, how do you get your crumb coat so thin?

Awesome tutorial. I'm going to try this on my next cake. It seems like you have much more control than when you use tip 789. Thank you for sharing.
