...lots of beach time and not a cake in sight!
The week just past found us doing a few new cake designs including our first jet ski!
A castle using Wilton's castle kit which includes all the towers, windows, front door & porchy bit above the door. The pieces are all white allowing you to personalise it with your own colours, glitter etc. Ours has pink fondant rolled in edible glitter.
...and around 50 more :-)
This 23 tier was for a Polynesian wedding where most of the cakes are generally given away to important guests & the rest is cut up for guests to eat on the night.
This buttercream recipe is great for covering cakes as well as piping. It makes around 3 cups.
Soften the butter till you can easily run the flat side of your knife through it without encountering any hard lumps- be careful not to melt the butter.
Add to your electric mixers' bowl.
If using a hard vegetable fat, soften till there are no lumps- this can be melted. Snocreme is a soft fat but may need to be softened slightly to make your icing more spreadable.
Add to the butter & mix on slow.
Add the icing sugar (if using a supermarket brand it will need to be sifted before use), vanilla & milk, keep mixing on slow to combine.
Once all ingredients are mixed in, beat on high for 1-2 minutes until your icing is nice and fluffy.
Your buttercream is best used right after making as it's at it's softest. If you leave it for a while (especially in winter) you may need to microwave it 10 seconds at a time till it's soft enough to use, then whip it up with your knife.
Your icing can be coloured using our gel colours. Visit our gel colours page for further instructions on colouring your buttercream.
