Video Tutorial - Upside Down Frosting Technique

post #1 of 81
Thread Starter 
I've had a few requests on my blog for how to do the upside down frosting technique...so, I made a video! This is my first video, so be nice! icon_smile.gif

There used to be one on youtube, but it's not there anymore. And can I say, whoever invented this technique for getting smoooooth buttercream and sharp corners is a genius! - I use it all the time!!! I hope you find this useful! icon_smile.gif

Great Tutorial! I haven't used this technique yet, despite my curiosity... but I think I will give it a try after seeing a video demonstration!

Can I ask what buttercream recipe you use? When I don't use SMBC, my ABC is shortening based... although I might still try it, but chill the cake in the freezer (I've heard it works that way)...

Thank you so much for sharing icon_smile.gif

You can try freezing a shortening based butter cream...that probably would work! I use SMBC or a whipped butter buttercream. It just needs to harden so you can flip the cake over and peel off the wax paper. The cake needs to be solid...so, freezing would be a great option! - it would just take longer.

Great video!! It just occurred to me this week that I had seen this technique before and needed to give it another look. Perfect timing!! Thanks for posting and for sharing your awesome work!!

I've seen this technique a couple of times before but never had the nerve to try. It just seems too risky and things could go terribly wrong! However, doing this technique ensures a flat top. Great video, it looks so easy.... maybe I'll attempt it this time? Wish me luck! thumbs_up.gif

Thank you! That was me! It has been years now....didn't know anyone still used it! One thing I did change was to use plastic coated freezer paper instead of parchment as I originally did....no wrinkles and it releases very cleanly!

I've taken my shortning based crusting buttercream, and just replaced the shortning with butter. Works great, and the taste is phenomenal!
