Okay, I'm trying to contain myself. This is the 4th cake dummy this weekend I iced. This is the FIRST cake in 5 years that I have been able to get a round top with BC icing!!!!!!
Okay, now think. Why in the h^## did I get a perfect round top?? Well, what I did this time was sit my butt down in a chair and scrape the icing off the side with a bench scraper. I did this to be sure my scraper was 100% straight. I normally just bend over and eye it.
I hot glued a small level to my spatula to make sure when I took the excess off the top it was level all the way until the middle of the cake.
Regarding my boards not being cut in a complete circle. I use a circle cutter from the scrapbooking section that has a blade on it that makes perfect circles. I use that as my guide with a hot knife to cut it out. Thanks for the input! =)
Let's hope I keep this up. I really want to do borderless borders.... Now my next quest, lets get those pesky spatula marks off the top of the cake....=)
