Along the way, a few people have commented that when they peel away the paper from the "top" of the cake, they sometime encounter air holes from bubbles that were in the icing....I don't generally have this problem and I know things like consistency and texture in the icing vary from baker to baker....that said...I set out to find a way to stop this and came up with this idea and it really worked good.....adds about 5 minutes to the process....

When you get ready to ice the board, instead of spreading a thick layer on, apply only the thinnest skim coat of icing. Then pop it in the fridge about 5 minutes to harden, then go back over it with the thicker coat and proceed as usual....and this should help eliminate thos bubbles some of you are getting!

I followed your tutorial this past weekend...and I have to say...IM HOOKED!!!!! So smooth...such crisp edges...Love, love, love it.....icon_wink.gif Thank you for the video

Thanks Jeff. I tried this technique, and it worked great for a flat top and perfectly straight sides. With a warm bench scraper I could get the sides very smooth, but I had a lot of trouble at the end getting a really smooth surface on the top. I'll have to try your suggestion and see if it helps.

Great video! I actually saw Jeff's tutorial years ago and used the method once when I needed the top to be white, and the sides to be pink (the 1st birthday cake in my pic), then totally forgot about it. I had my first hexagon shaped cake this last weekend and wasn't so excited about having to get all those nice sharp edges, and then I remembered this technique and it worked out perfectly, I don't know why I don't use it more often! Anyways, very nice video, especially for a first!

Me too, only my cake was blue and white. The first time I came across Jeff's upside down method was on egullet, then Ladycakes then read raves about how great it works, from a couple gals on Sweet Dreams cake site. Its also in the CC Articles link, and now there's a video of it too.
Can't get better than that! thumbs_up.gif

TIA



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...

http://www.amazon.com/OXO-Multi-Purpose-Pastry-Scraper-Chopper/dp/B00004OCNJ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=home-garden&qid=1307479681&sr=8-1

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:
http://www.amazon.com/Mountain-Woods-18-Lazy-Susan/dp/B00295IH04/ref=sr_1_17?ie=UTF8&qid=1307479959&sr=8-17

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





I got all my supplies tried it out today & works great....thanks again for the video
