Icing a cake - Page 4

The water is boiling and the hot spatula stay there for a few seconds and then dry with a paper towel before passing it in sections around the cake. You keep repeating until you are all the way around the cake.

Since I don't put merengue powder on my icing the buttercream stays soft and creamy. Also it doesn't crack at all.

I like how tutugirl has modified the technique, though -- doing the sides first and then rounding the top edge before working on the top. It looks like that helps get the top of the cake and the edges really smooth (my nemesis right now). Finishing off with the Viva paper towel and fondant paddle makes it perfect! Thanks, tutu! P.S. I have many of Toba's books; she's amazing. And her latest book Wedding Cake Art and Design is wonderful (here's hoping some of it will rub off!). icon_smile.gif

Awesome tutorial. Just proves my point when I say everyone has their own method of icing a cake. It's just a matter of experimentation and practice to find the method that works best for you.

I always tell the people I train that there is no magic trick to getting it smooth. Just practice practice practice.

You aren't letting it crust, probably. If your frosting isn't crusted, then the paper towel will stick. Let it sit at least 15 minutes or until the frosting forms a "crust" then try it.

No te preocupes, agata, lo único que tienes que hacer es quitar las migas que puedas y ponerle al pastel un recubrimiento delgado de betún (buttercream o ganache) en el que no importa que se vean las migas. Deja que esta capa repose un rato - hasta que endurezca un poco - y luego pones el betún, glaceado o fondant que quieras. ¿Qué receta usas? ¿Crees que suelta más migas que otros pasteles?
