post #31 of 81
Totally excited to try this method. I have used Sharon Z.'s method/dvd's & I am super excited to try this. When I clicked on the video, I was like 15 mins. Oey! But I am super glad I watched it all. I am going to do this on my son's cake this weekend. Thanks again!

Bummer about the turntable and Ikea not shipping it! Here's a pastry scaper/bench scaper on Amazon...just make sure whatever you get is at least 6" long...and has 90" corners on it...

Here's the lazy susan I love: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/90074483

But, since Ikea won't ship it out, here's one just like it...but for a lot more:

Or one for less: http://www.amazon.com/Fat-Daddios-Profile-Decorating-Turntable/dp/B00138Y964/ref=sr_1_4?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1307480054&sr=1-4

Good luck!

Thank you ... I finally found a dealer on ebay that has the Ikea 15" for $14 So I'm gonna buy two from him & he is discounting the shipping since I'm ordering more than one. Thanks again for the links and the video

Go to your local Lowes or Home Depot, or whatever home improvement store you have in your area, go to the paint department and purchase a 6 inch flexible sheet rock taping knife or paint edger or what ever they call it....make sure it has a flexible stainless blade. These have a nice handle and are so much easier to work with than a bench scraper.

As far as a turn table, I just use my regular heavy wilton or ateco one.....you can always invert a large round pan onto it [put a piece of non-slip rubber mat under it] to make a larger surface.

Have you tried this method on square cakes? I'm getting pretty good at the straight corners/edges on the sides of the cake, but the corners on the top supface of the cake sometimes aren't level (you know what I mean...droopy corners). I end up building them up with icing, but I was just wondered if doing them upside down would save me some work.

As far as the turntable goes, if you have a Big Lots (owned be WalMart), they usually have some wood turntables really cheap.

Okay for all of y'all who have actually done this technique, does it work with ganache? Or just buttercream? (or both?)

I actually do 75% of my cakes with ganache. It was just easier to show the buttercream because I don't have to worry about the temp of my chocolate for the video! icon_smile.gif But, I use this method all the time and LOVE it for ganache!! Try it...you'll be amazed how sharp your edges are and how easy it is to get straight, smooth sides!
