They don't teach you this in the Wilton classes, but did you know that if you add some clear corn syrup to your "real" buttercream icing (the icing I use to frost my entire cake with) it makes it very smooth and easy to spread? It does! Try it! I'm not sure of the exact measurement. Just add enough to make it glossy and smooth. Obviously don't go overboard with it.
I love food. I love art. Cake decorating combines both into one big bowl of fun! I designed this blog to keep track of my progress as an amateur cake decorator. Maybe someday I can make some money decorating cakes....maybe.
